Curriculum vitae Jasper Maas


Schools in primary and secondary education have been faced with a high workload, a relatively high turnover rate and a shortage of teachers. In light of this issue, Jasper Maas's research focuses on the well-being of teachers. The aim is to answer questions such as: How is the well-being of teachers related to their work? And what role can school principals play? Based on the Job Demands-Resources Model (Bakker & Demerouti, 2017), he investigates how support from school principals and the work of teachers are related to well-being that teachers (do or do not) experience in their work. This includes burnout complaints and the basic psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness (Deci & Ryan, 2000). In his research Jasper Maas mainly uses quantitative analysis techniques such as Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and mediation and moderation analysis.
