About Me

Ik ben universitair hoofddocent bij de lerarenopleiding ELAN van de Universiteit Twente. Mijn onderzoek richt zich op (professionele ontwikkeling in) datagebruik en formatief toetsen. Ik wil graag docenten en schoolleiders ondersteunen bij het gebruiken van allerlei gegevens voor het verbeteren van het onderwijs. Ik heb verschillende prijzen gewonnen voor mijn werk, waaronder voor mijn werk rondom de datateam® methode. Deze interventie heb ik ontwikkeld en uitgebreid onderzocht. Het boek hierover, getiteld “De datateam® methode: Een concrete aanpak voor onderwijsverbetering”, is verschenen in het Nederlands, Zweeds en Engels. Ik ben de president-elect van ICSEI (International Congress on School Effectiveness and Improvement) en de oprichter en voorzitter van het ICSEI data use netwerk. Mijn nationale en internationale ervaring zet ik graag in voor het verbeteren van het leren van leerlingen in het onderwijs.

Research

My research focusses on the use of different types of evidence in schools. I have studied the use of formative assessment (data-based decision making, assessment for learning, and diagnostic testing), the use of research in schools, and big data in education. How can we support schools in the use of data to improve education is one of my central questions. I am the initiator and project leader of the data team® procedure project. After a small scale pilot, the data team® procedure is currently being used by many schools in the Netherlands, England, Belgium, Sweden, and the USA. I have been involved in several studies regarding the use of data in different countries. One of these projects, for example, was an EU funded project into the use of data in the Netherlands, England, Germany, Lithuania and Poland.
