PDEng position in NWO-project GoPro Learning Communities: Connecting learning at school and the workplacePosted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2020-Feb-26
The department of Educational Science is specialised in research on professional learning in organisations.

In our research group, we combine expertise from a range of disciplines (e.g., educational sciences, psychology, business administration). Staff members participate in the ICO research school (the Interuniversity Centre of Educational Sciences) and the Twente Graduate School. Our department is responsible for the courses of the Human Resource Development track of the Master Educational Science and Technology, and the corresponding pre-Master program.
