President Elect - Kim Schildkamp
Dr. Kim Schildkamp is an associate professor in the Faculty of Behavioural, Management, and Social Sciences of the University of Twente. Kim's international research has focused on different ways to improve teaching and learning. In particular Kim's research, in the Netherlands but also in other countries, focuses on different forms of data use at different levels of the system: The use of formal data (e.g., data-based decision making), the use of informal data (e.g., Assessment for Learning), the use of research results (e.g., research-informed teaching practice), and the use of big data in education. A lot of her work focuses on supporting school leaders and teachers in the use of data for professional development and school improvement purposes. Kim believes that researchers cannot work in isolation from practitioners and policymakers. Practitioners and policy makers cannot base their decisions solely on hunches, intuition and past experience, but need to be informed by data and research.
