CV Prof. dr. Adrie Visscher

I am a full professor at the University of Twente and also hold an endowed chair in data-based decision making at the University of Groningen. I am interested in how teachers can be supported in optimising the quality of their lessons and their impact on student learning by providing them with feedback: feedback about the features of their teaching activities (e.g. based on student perceptions, or lesson observations), and feedback about their impact on student achievement. As this kind of feedback can be the starting point of improvement-oriented activities, my research also focuses on how teachers can be trained effectively for differentiating their teaching activities in line with students’ varying instructional needs.
