Jeff Gradener (1964) studied biology-chemistry at the teacher-training institute in Utrecht (SOL) and chemical biology at Utrecht University. He has been a teacher trainer at the Archimedes Institute of HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht since 1993.
Jeff has been involved in various innovative projects for the design, introduction and supervision of state-of-the-art and modern education.
Since 1 September 2017, Jeff has been a member of the Research group Science and Technology Education, under the direction of Professor Elwin Savelsbergh.
