Our research group focuses on educational change processes and the competences teachers need to drive change. We pursue evidence-informed and goal-oriented development, implementation and evaluation of changes, to strengthen the sustainability of educational change and ultimately to improve learning.

Lines of research within the research group



The short-term and long-term results of many educational changes often remain unclear. The research group wants to help initiate and implement changes in a more goal-oriented, substantiated way – in HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and in other educational institutions.



The research group works closely with the Centre for Expertise, Talent & Skill, with educational programmes offered at HU and with the Teaching and Learning Network. They also collaborate with regional, national and international partners in professional practice, education and research.
