WdKA work field

I have been teaching at the WdKA since 2015, co-teaching quarter 9 Cultural Diversity with Paul Pos. Since then I have been involved with developing the curriculum for the subject matter of Cultural Diversity with Nana Adusei-Poku and Mark Mulder from year two to four. I am also involved in teaching qualitative research methods and my teaching practice is informed by the body knowledge 'inclusive pedagogy'. I was also part of the team set up by Nana Adusei-Poku to investigate social inclusion at the WdKA, under the project name WdKA makes a Difference. This group worked via action based research for two years and resulted in an event at TENT art museum and a publication and a website.
