Coordinator Educational Professional Development

About Me

Cornelise Vreman – de Olde studied Applied Physics at the University of Twente. Following her interest in learning and teaching, she then pursued a degree as a physics teacher. After teaching physics and computer applications for several years, she further developed her expertise on learning and teaching  with a PhD-project entitled 'Learning by designing assignments'. Since completing her PhD, she has been working at the Centre of Expertise in Learning & Teaching at the University of Twente as a  trainer and educational consultant. From 2010-2020 she was seconded to the faculty of Science & Technology, where she was involved in coaching lecturers during the University Teaching Qualification trajectory, giving educational advice regarding curriculum design, mentoring students and coordinating the module Preparation Bachelor Assignment (M11 CSE) and Models, Signals and System (M5,TN). She was an external member of the Board of Examiners for the educational programmes of Mechanical Engineering (until Jan 2019), Chemical Science & Engineering and Nanotechnology (until July 2020). 

In summer 2020, she has changed positions and started working as Process Facilitator to support teams in achieving their goals. Within Shaping 2030, she is now project lead Shaping Expert Group Innovation of Education.

From February 2022 onwards, she is coordinator Educational Professional Development within CELT.
