Introduction
I'm a PhD student at the Department of Educational Sciences at Ghent University in Belgium. My research focusses on clinical simulations in teacher education as an innovative instruction strategy. My PhD project aims to gain theoretical and empirical insight in the effectiveness of the use of clinical simulations in teacher education on student teachers' (1) competence development and (2) their readiness for the teaching job.

Article
This study investigated the effectiveness of clinical simulations (CS) as an instructional strategy to prepare student teachers to conduct parent-teacher conferences. A pre-test/post-test study was set up in order to study the impact of online (n = 181) and face-to-face CS (n = 95) on student teachers’ parent-teacher communication competence (PTCC)...
Article
This article describes the development of a self-report survey measure of student teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs about family-teacher communication. Consistent with a guiding conceptual framework (Walker & Dotger, 2012), an exploratory factor analysis (n = 266) suggested a two-factor structure: (1) structuring the conversation (α = .92) and (2) re...
Chapter
Full-text available
Clinical simulations have recently been presented as a promising instructional strategy to overcome the theory-practice gap in teacher education. Taking this into account, this chapter aims to enhance insight into the core ideas underlying the design and construction of simulation-based learning environments. For this purpose, this chapter first pr...
Presentation
Full-text available
This presentation reports about a quasi-experimental study in which the impact of clinical simulations on the development of student teachers' competences needed to communicate successfully with parents is studied.
Article
Full-text available
The ability to give constructive, purposeful and timely feedback is essential to the teaching profession. Research indicates that this competence remains underdeveloped during initial teacher education. This paper focuses on the design, implementation, and evaluation of a competence development intervention with secondary mathematics student teache...
Article
This study reports on the design of a video-based instrument to assess student teachers’ parent–teacher communication competences (PTCC) in a reliable and valid way. PTCC refer to the competences needed to communicate successfully with parents during conversations such as parent–teacher conferences. Taking into account both conceptual and methodolo...
