Teaching

I have taught at university level since 2008, mostly at Leiden University, with a brief spell at Radboud University Nijmegen. In 2014, I was awarded with the Humanities Faculty Teaching Prize for the most inspiring lecturer of the faculty of Humanities at Leiden University. In 2015/2016, I was one of the teaching ambassadors for ‘blended learning’ at Leiden University’s Education Centre for Online Learning (ECOLe). In 2017, I was one of three nominees for the LUS Teaching Award.

Below you can find an overview of the courses I am currently teaching, as well as a list of courses and guest lectures I have taught in the past.

An overview of the completed BA and MA theses I have supervised in the past can be found here: overview of thesis supervision.
