Maaike Severijnen (1973) has developed a keen insight into areas such as entrepreneurship, media and education. This is evident from the work she performed after studying General Arts at Utrecht University and journalism at the School of Journalism in Utrecht.
As a freelance for the past 20 years, she has contributed to a multitude of (professional) magazines and newspapers. She is currently editor-in-chief of the specialist journal Voedingsgeneeskunde (Nutritional Science - NL only). She has also worked for educational publishers and as a freelance trainer. Since 2016, she has been working at the School of Journalism as a lecturer in freelancing and as a coordinator of educational innovation.
Her work for the research group fits in seamlessly with all her work experience to date, as well as with the Journalism degree programme. How do you provide journalism education in these unstable and fluid times? In other words: how do you best train students for a sector that is so subject to change? In the coming time she will be working to provide an answer to this question.
