N. Goossen MSc (Nick)

PhD Candidate

About Me

Having studied the Master Educational Science & Technology at this university and having been a teacher in the program for two years, I am currently a PhD Candidate focusing on workplace learning and self-directed learning as a means to accelerate digital transformation. I try to look at learning as a dynamic process, rather than something that is static or a tendency, and am researching methods for measurement and support that fit that perspective.


I am a PhD Candidate in the section of Educational Science, in which I am interested in studying and supporting workplace learning. I mainly focus on self-directed learning, as I feel this is a skill that is increasingly important in today's society and the main driver of lifelong learning. In my research, I work on finding new ways to measure and provide support for self-directed learning.


My main teaching activities are in the minor 'Professional Learning in Organizations' and the supervision of students working on their thesis (both Bachelor and Master).
