Tamara de Groot

Tamara de Groot is a lecturer in the Humanities at Erasmus University College, member of the lectorate Transdisciplinary Education Innovation at Codarts University of the Arts, and involved in the development of transdisciplinary (teacher) education across three higher education institutions: Codarts, Willem De Kooning Academy and Erasmus University.

She’s currently writing her PhD dissertation on innovative educational practices that combine artistic, scientific, and societal knowledges, and taking a new materialist approach to rethinking collaboration, transdisciplinarity and educational research. In her educational practice, she works with SF and alternative futurisms to encourage students to question how we construct the narratives of the future, past and present.

Recently she has been developing an educational practice inspired by the notion of worldmaking and re-worlding, called Collaborative Worldmaking.
