About the professor
As a doctoral educationalist, Sluijsmans has been active in the field of educational design since 1997, with a special focus on testing and assessment. She is interested in the value that assessment can have for the development of pupils and students.
In her work, Sluijsmans has collaborated with various people within various educational sectors. She gets energy from working with schools and study programmes where, together with the team and with a critical eye, she wants to take a close look at the curriculum and the way assessments are carried out.
Her experience as a researcher, advisor and speaker help Sluijsmans to work in a research-informed way, without losing sight of the specific context of a university of applied sciences or study programme and the issues experienced there.
Sluijsmans also works as a lecturer in the Curriculum Development Master's programme of the Faculty of Pedagogical Sciences and Educational Sciences at Radboud University. She previously worked as a professor at the University of Arnhem and Nijmegen and Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and as an associate professor at Maastricht University and the Open University. Sluijsmans obtained a doctorate from the Open University in 2002 with research into the development of peer assessment skills in future teachers.
