Renske de Kleijn, PhD, works as an assistant professor at the Education Center of University Medical Center Utrecht.

After a research master in Educational Sciences (2007-2009), she worked on her PhD thesis on the topic of Feedback and Student-supervisor relationships in Master’s thesis supervision (2008-2013). After her dissertation defense she continued to work as an educational consultant at the department of Education, Utrecht University, and obtained both a Basic and Senior Qualification in Educational Advice (BKA; SKA). Starting in 2015 she combined her role as a consultant with a function as assistant professor at the same department. Her aim in doing so was to form a bridge between the group of educational consultants and educational researchers. Since 2018 Renske works as an assistant professor at the UMC Utrecht. Her work focusses on conducting and supervising educational research on the topics of feedback and self-regulation in higher education in general and (bio)medical education in particular. She is passionate about doing research for and with those who design and implement education.

Together with Prof. dr. Marieke van der Schaaf she developed the UMCU PhD programme Life Sciences Education Research (LSER), of which she is also the programme coordinator (
