Professor Pedagogical Professionalism of Teachers

From January 2020, Carlos van Kan will be working as a professor on Pedagogical Professionalism of Teachers at Research Centre Urban Talent at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. He also works as a senior researcher in the field of strengthening the pedagogical dimension of education at the HAN University of Applied Sciences.

Van Kan received his PhD from Leiden University in 2013 on research into teachers' pedagogical ideals. Pedagogical values and ideals guide action in concrete educational situations. Again and again, the central question is 'what is most in their interest at this moment for these pupils in this situation, and why'? Individual teachers and teams of teachers will have to permanently relate to this question in order to do justice to each pupil.
