Elise Eshuis (1991) studied Business Administration (BSc) and Psychology (MSc) at the University of Twente. For her master’s thesis she participated in the STIP-project (Samenwerken tijdens Taak-, Inhoud- en Procesdifferentiatie), where she examined the individual contributions during knowledge exchange in heterogeneous (i.e., mixed-ability) cooperative learning groups and the learning gains of students with different ability levels in elementary education. In January 2016, Elise started her PhD-project at the department of Instructional Technology.
Within the context of the project “21st century skills for vocational technical students; a high-tech approach”, Elise investigates the process of how 21st century skills are acquired and focuses on developing and assessing the effectiveness of digital tools that support students in gaining 21st century skills in the context of inquiry learning with virtual science laboratories.
