Johanna (Anita) C.G. Jacobs studied Medicine and graduated in 1990. Afterwards she worked in the Clinical Training Centre of the medical school of the Catholic University Nijmegen (the Netherlands). Inspired by enthusiastic colleagues she studied part-time Educational Sciences (also at the Catholic University Nijmegen) from 1996 to 2001 and combined this with her work in the Clinical Training Centre, later Dept. of Medical Education. At that time she also was a teacher at a school for vocational training, in the health domain. In 2004 she started to work at VU University Medical Centre, Amsterdam. Her main tasks were curriculum innovation (in Medicine) and faculty development, esp. clinical educators in the undergraduate setting. From 2008-2015 she combined this with her PhD-research on teachers' conceptions of learning and teaching. Since February 2020 she works at the Expertise Centre of the Educational Dept. of UMC Utrecht.
