About Me

Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Sietse Brands, formerly a primary school teacher and research assistent and currently a PhD candidate in educational science.

How can we create a strong educational environment for vocational education with a strong emphasis on both theoretical and practical knowledge? And how to enhance the relation between student, school and workplace? For this challenge, my PhD research studies the effects of action cameras. In this study apprentices in underground construction work  record their performance in the workplace and bring these recordings back to school. Several elements of education will be part of the research:

Student self assessment and self reflection scaffolded by video;

Teacher assessment based on video;

Quality of teacher guidance based on video.
