Researcher
Dr. Peter Mesker works as a senior lecturer and teacher trainer at the Archimedes Institute. As a researcher, he is involved in the research groups Normative Professionalization and Participation and Urban Development. 

Peter is interested in the professional development of (beginning) teachers at the interface of different worlds, for example during intercultural or international experiences, but also in interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaborations such as a professional learning community. Such boundary experiences can make teachers more aware of what kind of teacher they want to be or help them to function as bridge builders in the school or their discipline.

"Pivotal experiences of starting teachers often arise from 'small' everyday interactions between teachers and students"

Peter’s PhD-study used an international internship as a case study to describe the professional development of beginning teachers. The focus was on boundary experiences during the international internship and the impact of these experiences on the beliefs of the teachers in the induction phase.
