Section Educational Science (OWK)

The section Educational Science (OWK) is specialised in research on professional learning in organisations.

OWK is part of the Department Learning, Data analytics and Technology (LDT) within the Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social sciences (BMS).

Researchers at our section study formal and informal learning of (future) employees, including the use of technology to measure and support professional learning. Our studies often take place in the high-tech, health, and educational sector with the intention to understand, evaluate and optimize professional learning in these various contexts. We aim to understand the interactions between learning processes on the individual, team, and organizational level and design (technology based) interventions to optimize these processes. In our research group, we combine expertise from a range of disciplines (e.g., educational sciences, psychology, business administration). Staff members participate in the ICO research school (the Interuniversity Centre of Educational Sciences) and the Twente Graduate School.
