Assistent professor
dr. T. (Theo) van Dellen



Dr. T. (Theo) van Dellen is assistant professor in the department of Pedagogics and Educational Sciences at the University of Groningen. He is responsible for the topic “Transformative (lifelong) learning in workplaces” within the Lifelong learning program. Theo strives for an integral, interdisciplinary approach of developing theory and practice which supports adult learning processes for work through subjectivity, identity construction and transformation. The outcome in terms of theory may serve to understand the affective, cognitive and social characteristics of spaces which promote learning for work. His engagement with the complex and messy realities around workplaces is supported by humanistic and positive psychology. In addition, he calls himself to be a skeptical empiricist.
