Jens is Executive Dean at Stenden Thailand, which is part of the international campus network of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands, and is based at Panyapiwat Institute of Management in Bangkok. With over 10 years’ experience in international higher education, Jens is used to practical-oriented approaches to education within his institution, incorporating digital technologies that impact his work in the development of curricula. Developments such as the introduction of flexible educational concepts like Design-Based Education and strengthened focus on 21st century skills require new forms of academic activities. Hence, the migration from teachers to facilitators has started pre-Corona as a necessity for collaborative learning among the students and is now undergoing even further developments. Jens and his team have gone through a steep learning curve in the recent COVID-19 pandemic but are meanwhile successfully managing the international online classrooms and collaborative learning nonetheless of their students.
