Pieter de Vries

Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands

My expertise is in the field of learning innovation in the industry and in Higher Engineering Education with the focus on technology enhanced learning and capacity building. The emphasis is on using new insights, theoretical findings and technologies for learning with a design-based research approach to involve and allow stakeholders to (in-) directly improve their teaching and learning skills and amplify their capacity for innovative educational practices.

I have an interdisciplinary background in Human Geography, Mass Communication, Learning Sciences and in particular Online Learning and Learning Technologies (PhD). I worked in various occupations as teacher, developer, coordinator, researcher and manager. My experiences range from secondary education to higher education and a variety of public and private organizations, industries and national and international projects. These comprise the service industry, transport, do-it-yourself, energy, the EU, higher engineering education and others.

I am associated with the Delft University of Technology and the 4TU Centre of Engineering Education, an association of the 4 technical universities in the Netherlands and operate as an independent adviser.
