Worldwide, higher education institutions face challenges to their digital learning environments. Next generation digital learning environments must meet the requirements of evolving learning methodologies, the realities of the new life-long student demographic, and constantly evolving hardware and software technologies.
I am project manager at SURFnet, and responsible for the Digital learning environment project. In this project, I bring IT in education professionals together in networks and collaborative projects in order to support institutions with their developments on the digital learning environment. The last 7 years, I managed several innovation projects at SURFnet. Before SURFnet, I worked at the Dutch ministry of economic affairs as policy advisor digital government. I have master degrees in business sciences (2002) and public information management (2007).
