Jacqueline van Muijlwijk-Koezen awarded with new teaching innovation grant

AIMMS researcher Dr Jacqueline van Muijlwijk-Koezen (Dept. of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences) has received a postdoc-VO grant from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science for her research on innovation in education. It is the second time she receives this teaching innovation grant.

The project "A perspective on learning to perform research" was awarded to a team of teaching and beta-didactic researchers: Hanna Westbroek (Faculty of Behavioral and Movement Sciences, VU), Martijn Meeter (Faculty of Behavioral and Movement Sciences, VU), Fred Janssen (University of Leiden) and Jacqueline van Muijlwijk. With the grant, a postdoc will be appointed for 2 years to investigate the embedding of the scientific method (theory-hypothesis-experiment) in secondary education. Resources will also be developed to modernize and improve practical courses.

With this successful team, Dr van Muijlwijk-Koezen has previously received a DuDoc (Didactic University Research of DOCents for the renewal of the beta subjects) to investigate chemical reasoning perspectives.
