Professor Pedagogy

Carlos van Kan has been working as a professor in Pedagogy at the Research Centre Urban Talent at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences since January 2020. He is also working as senior researcher in the field of strengthening the pedagogical dimension of education at HAN University of Applied Sciences.

Van Kan obtained his PhD at Leiden University in 2013 on research into teachers' pedagogical ideas. Pedagogical values and ideals give direction to action in concrete educational situations. Again and again, the central question is ‘what is in their best interest at this moment for these students in this situation, and why?’ Individual teachers and teacher teams will have to continuously keep this question in mind in order to do justice to each pupil.
