Michiel Dam is an Assistant Professor at ICLON Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching. He received his PhD at the University of Leiden on the basis of his thesis entitled: Making educational reforms practical for teachers (2014). Since 2013, he has worked as (biology and science) teacher educator and researcher, first at the University of Amsterdam (until 2017) and then at ICLON (the Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching). Currently, he works in research alongside Fred Janssen to study ways in which innovations can be made practical. Other research interests are domain specific features of science topics and how these influence effective learning and teaching (e.g., what makes teaching and learning ecology different from evolution?) and ways in which teachers can use specific student data to direct their own professional development. He supervises 2 PhD students and 1 postdoc.
