About this research
Within the professorship, the following two research lines determine the central focus:
- Learning of motor skills. In recent years, in close cooperation with schools and other research institutes, research in this research line has mainly been carried out on the use of innovative technology in PE classes, as in the projects Digitization in the PE class (Raak publiek), Looking Back with a Tablet, The yields of the PE class (NRO) and Smart Sports Exercises (ZonMw)
- School and Sport. Within this research line, research has been conducted in the past few years on sports projects and on the relationship between physical education, (school) sports and school environment. Examples include the project Sport for Participation (Raak publiek), a PhD dissertation on the Socially binding significance of (school) sport (in collaboration with the Mulier Institute), Capacity for sports (with Utrecht municipality), Smart Moves (with VU, VUMC), and Physical Literacy (in collaboration with KVLO, Research Centre for Sport and other professorships).
