. Lab lead:
As the founder of the Urban Leisure & Tourism Lab, urban sociologist and associate professor Roos Gerritsma was there at the start of the lab in 2015.
As coordinator, Jolanda Möller is the linking pin between students, learning coaches, researchers, external partners and anyone who wants to do something with the lab. She is quartermaster for the new location on Buikslotermeerplein, where the lab opened its doors in September 2021. In addition to being a lab coordinator, Jolanda is also an advisor in the field of process management and educational logistics within the Creative Business domain. As a chain thinker, she knows how to understand complex processes and translates them into practical solutions. “My goal is to ensure that all supporting processes run smoothly so that students, learning coaches, learning directors, lab leads and field partners can fully focus on education and research. I’m always looking for improvements, because standing still is not an option.”
I obtained my propaedeutic year from the Bookshop & Publishing programme at the AUAS. During my studies, I was offered a job as an editorial assistant at a publishing house. I then hung my education on the proverbial willows. Since 2000 I have been working at Hogeschool Holland in various roles and functions: from coordinator intake and practice agency, quality employee to advisor educational logistics. In the meantime, I have completed the HBO Quality and Process Management and Prince2 Project Management courses.
My expertise in the field of educational logistics and my organizational skills.
Take the ferry to North, eat out at one of the many restaurants at the NDSM wharf and cycle over the Nieuwendammerdijk and Schellingwouderdijk. I also have a special bond with Amsterdam-North: my mother was born here and my parents met at work at one of the shipyards that North was rich in at the time. I am even named after a ship that was built at this shipyard at the time.
