Teaching

As a teacher I specialized myself in the areas of Technology and Culture, Organization Studies, and Crisis Management. I currently teach (both in Dutch and English) undergraduates and graduates within the curricula Culture, Organization and Management, Public Administration and Organization Science and within the Social Sciences Research Master. Previously I gave courses in the field of Technology Assessment. I supervised about 85 and co-supervised about 120 master-students with their final thesis. At this page you can find an overview of my teaching activities during the last ten years.
