Lectorate Pedagogy

Together with the School of Education at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, the Pedagogy lectorate will focus on strengthening the pedagogical professionalism of prospective teachers by means of practice-based research. Day-to-day teacher-pupil interactions in educational situations form the starting point for researching, making explicit and discussing pedagogical values and ideals with teacher educators and teachers (in training).

In the Randstad region, including Rotterdam, there is a shortage of qualified teachers. In addition, schools place high demands on the pedagogical and didactic knowledge and skills of teachers. In the most recent competence requirements for teachers, pedagogical competence is one of the central pillars (in addition to subject matter and subject didactical competence). The question for teacher education is how this pedagogical competence can be developed by and with students in a professional and training context.


“I see my task as making teachers (in training) aware of the fact that they continuously weigh up pedagogical interests in their daily teaching practice, and that gaining insight into which interests matter more than others is only possible when teachers investigate their pedagogical values and ideals and bring them into dialogue.”
