Personal profile


I am the NRC (national research coordinator) for the international reading survey PIRLS, which examines pupils' reading in 4th grade. In addition, I am focused on h how the world outside school can be integrated into teaching through the so-called scenario-based teaching. Finally, I am interested in IT and technology, multimodality and teacher competence development.
