About the chair

The full title of the Chair provides a summary of the kind of applied and practice-based research I am currently conducting: Open educational resources and their adoption by teachers, learners and institutions. I am interested to find out what actions will lead to large-scale adoption by OER and open online courses (whether or not massive) by (in Rogers’ terminology) the early and late majority of teachers in higher education.

Relevant projects

  • Study on adoption of OER in TVET, commissioned by UNESCO/UNEVOC
  • Research on cross-institutional creating and sharing of OER in nursing programs

Relevant publications

Here is an overview of publications (many of them in Dutch)
