In various projects, I work on curriculum development and its quality assurance in the field of land and water management and agriculture. I participate in such projects in Ethiopia, (Jimma University), in Yemen (Water and Environment Centre in Sana’a) and Benin (Université Dahomey Calavi, Faculté des Sciences Agronomiques (FSA) and Faculté des Sciences et Techniques (FAST), Cotounou), in South Africa (University of Western Cape and Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town) and in Vietnam (Centre for Water Management and Climate Change CWMCC), Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City).
For a multitude of organisations I design and offer courses and training programmes, that are ‘handson’ and consist of equal parts of practical and applied exercises and of theory (learning by doing). The trainings are usually ‘on the job’ and tailor made. Examples of these programmes include ‘Networking’, ‘Management skills’, ‘Management and administration’, ‘Coaching’, ‘Teambuilding and selfscoring teams’, ‘Project management’, ‘Effective Writing’, ‘writing for target groups’, ‘Clear writing’, Academic writing’, ‘Intercultural communication’ and ‘Human resource management’.
In addition among others I'm a certified trainer for the European Commmission through Schouten & Nelissen.
