Welcome to the website of Catelijne Coopmans!
My work consists of two interconnected parts. As an academic, I work in the field of Science & Technology Studies (currently as a Research Fellow at Linköping University) and contribute to efforts to innovate and humanize higher education. As a coach, I support academics and others to keep sane, passionate, and, above all, human in the work we do and the lives we lead.
My research deals with questions of seeing and knowing in relation to dynamics of expertise and accountability. What is there to be seen and discovered in a medical image, data display, or work of art? Learn more.
My coaching is based on the Co-Active ® Model, which emphasizes the 'being' as well as the 'doing'. I work to connect the human desire to grow and make a difference with each person's natural resourcefulness. Learn more.
'Fakes' and 'Time and Life' are interdisciplinary, seminar-style courses for students of all disciplines at Tembusu College. I have also taught courses on visual culture, qualitative methods and science, technology & society. Learn more.
♡ Higher Ed
The work I have done as a teacher and director of curriculum connects with broader movements, ideas, and networks of people invested in improving and innovating higher education. Key values are authenticity, curiosity and courage. Learn more.
