Jan-Willem Strijbos is a Full Professor of the Department of Educational Sciences at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. He received his Masters degree from the Radboud University Nijmegen in 1999 and the PhD degree (with honors) from the Open University of the Netherlands in 2004. From 2005 to 2010, he was a postdoctoral researcher and Assistant Professor in the Institute for Child and Education Studies at the Leiden University. From 2011 to 2016, he was a Professor of the Department of Psychology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in Germany.
He is currently a coordinator of the Special Interest Group 1 (“Assessment & Evaluation”) of EARLI. He is a member of the Scientific Board for Computers in Human Behavior and edited special issues on topics such as “CSCL methodology” (Learning and Instruction, 2007), “peer assessment” (Learning and Instruction, 2010), and “roles in CSCL” (Computers in Human Behavior, 2010). He also edited the third volume in the Springer CSCL series, What We Know about CSCL (2004). His research focuses on the design, implementation, and effectiveness of interactive learning practices (collaborative learning, peer assessment and feedback, learning communities) in physical and virtual settings.
My research interest is on formative and sustainable feedback practices within higher and secondary education.
In my PhD project on face-to-face peer assessment practices with the use of Mobile Response Technology, I focus on the conditions under which face-to-face peer assessment practices can best be implemented.
In these contexts, I focus on the effect of anonymity on interpersonal variables between students. Additionally the role of the teacher within these peer assessment practices will be explored.
I studied a degree in Psychology at Universitat de Barcelona (2010-2014). After that, I decided to study a Master degree specialised in Language Pathologies, Deafness and Neuropsychological diseases at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2014-2015). As part of a Master’s program, I got an internship at CREDAC (Centre of Educational Resources for Deafness people) where I established contact with learning processes and with formal, non-formal and informal educational institutions. In that point of my career, I realised that what I really love is Psychology Education and that was the reason why I decided to study the Psychology Education Master degree at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
During my first year coursing the Psychology Education master degree, I collaborated with the FBBVA project in which I participated in the processes of data collection, as well as, doing structured interviews with pupils and teachers, from different colleges and universities. The aim was to know about their perceptions in relation with methodologies of learning and evaluation processes. With that interviews we wanted to know how the different types of evaluation could affect in the motivational processes and, at the end, with the obtained academic results.
I graduated in Psychology at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid with the mention in clinical itinerary in 2015. I am currently studying a postgraduate in Educational Psychology at the same university and also participating in a research group directed by Ernesto Panadero, Ph.D.
I did my college intern at Centro Madrid Salud Usera, attending as an observer to clinical sessions with mental health patients and to group sessions with parents of a public school. Furthemore, I attended as an observer and partaker to a group called “Aprender y practicar Mindfulness” directed by the psychiatrist Gustavo Winter Althaus. On the other hand, I have volunteered with Fundación Síndrome de Down de Madrid, exercising accompaniment and instruction in leisure activities, Centro de Recuperación de Fauna de Tafira, supporting the teachers in the excursions in which the children participated in the Liberation of recovered wild animals, Comunidad de Madrid, in a project called “Todos a desayunar”, assisting and accompanying children from unstructured families during breakfast time and, Centro Lugo de Cáritas in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, assisting women in prostitution situations.
I graduated in Psychology (with mention in clinical and educational psychology) from the Universidad Camilo José Cela (Madrid). I´m currently studying a master’s degree in educational psychology at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
My interest in research began when I started to explore the impact of teaching methodologies on students’ learning. I was interested in motivation and learning strategies. A couple of years later I discovered self-regulated learning which was the key to connect my ideas with the teaching-learning process.
