After finishing my studies at Utrecht and Sheffield University I worked for 15 years as a teacher in secondary education and at the CPS national expertise centre Modern Languages as part-time trainer of in-service language teachers.
Subsequently I worked in Higher Education for 20 years at the Faculty of Education of the Hogeschool Utrecht, University of Applied Sciences where I held a variety of positions: Lecturer in MFL Pedagogy, Teacher/Researcher e-learning and ICT & CALL-coordinator.
Interested in innovation I got involved in the acquisition, coordination and evaluation of national and EU-projects in the fields of modern languages, teacher education and e-learning.
As part of the first national project to promote the adoption of educational technology I had the pleasure of coordinating the professional development programme on ICT in education for language teacher educators in Dutch Higher Education. Later, during the EU Comenius Programme, I got registered as an expert for the European Commission’s subsequent programmes and since the start of the ErasmusPlus programme, for the Dutch National Agency.
I actively participate in various (inter)national networks, SIGs and CoPs, e.g. for the European Centre of Modern Languages (ECML) I moderated the LanguageQuest network. I also helped to develop LinguaCoP, the community for LSP teachers initiated by the Catapult Project.
After finishing my activities for Hogeschool Utrecht, I started and currently run TELLConsult. Since then I initiate(d) and participate(d) in various EU projects.
Together with a group of international academic and practitioner experts we also run TELLConsult’s training- and consultancy service on Technology Enhanced Lifelong & Language Learning. This allows us to further promote the use of the results of the EU projects we were involved in.
