I work as a learning engineer and learning space designer at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, School of Sports Studies in the Netherlands. Within my work I feel responsible for leading higher education towards the future of work. A transition that needs a new approach to knowledge and designing learning spaces.
Teaching becomes more and more a job of facilitating the learning space in a VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous). A development towards understructered and overprepared learning spaces. In the understructured and overprepared learning space you have unpredictable outcomes. These unpredicted outcomes carries risks and it is our challenge to see the beauty of it and facilitate the learning experiences in it.
These learning spaces facilitate a learning experience where people are engaged, can trust on their talents, get curious and entrepreneurial, so they can reach for their full potential and have impact in the world. The focus in the learning process is on empowerment and entrepreneurship rooted in a performance mindset. Impact is shown in getting things done. Ultimately, people develop new ways of approaching the world, through the power of learning. That is why I work hard to make learning awesome and significant.
Engineering learning and designing learning spaces is what I do as a senior professional at the University, as a performance coach in different sports and in my workshocks. I also write about innovation of higher education and learning on my personal blog.
