Pedagogy and Education
Our research is inspired by the many pedagogical and educational challenges that large urban areas such as the City of Rotterdam are faced with. More specifically, our projects focus on children and youth in general and those at risk and at situations that endanger development in particular. Our research programme comprises several interrelated domains that represent staff expertise regarding Orthopedagogical science, Family science and Educational science. The main aim of our research programme is to contribute to knowledge about upbringing, education and instruction to help youth to fully develop their potential in various domains of development and functioning within the context of a large urban area.
