Maaike Severijnen (1973) has developed a keen insight into areas such as entrepreneurship, media and education.
After studying General Arts at Utrecht University and journalism at the School of Journalism in Utrecht, she worked as a freelance journalist for the past 20 years. Here she has contributed to a multitude of (professional) magazines and newspapers. She has also worked for educational publishers and as a freelance teacher/trainer. Since 2016, she has been working at the School of Journalism as a coordinator of educational innovation and teacher freelancen. Since 2019 she works as well as a researcher in the research group Quality Journalism in Digital Transition.
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 in different projects to explore this question even further.
