Teaching experience in specific countries:
Brazil: Viçosa, Minas Gerais: Course leader and lecturer in the Post academic course “Simulation and systems analysis in growth, production and water use in crops” in cooperation with the University of Viçosa, Brazil.
India: 1974-1975; MSc research and some lectures.
The Netherlands: lectured in 5 Post academic courses, and in 9 PhD courses.
Belgium: lectured in 2 Post academic courses.
Hungary: lectured in 1 Post academic course.
Italy: lectured in a series of 4 Post academic courses in four consecutive years.
Spain: lectured in 1 Post academic course.
These courses were addressing crop growth, crop protection, forestry and competition between crops. All courses were based on the systems analysis approach, of which the principles were taught as well.
Professional Teaching Record:
I have developed BSc and MSc courses and gave series of lectures in subjects such as Simulation of ecological processes, Agro-ecology, The greenhouse effect and climate change, Systems analysis and simulation, Crop Ecology, Quantitative Aspects of Crop Growth, Modelling Biological Systems, Models for Forest and Nature Conservation and Models for Ecological Systems. Furthermore, I (partly) developed and lectured in 23 post academic courses.
Further responsibilities in the development of BSc, MSc and PhD courses were exercised as teaching coordinator of the chair group Plant Production Systems (Formerly Theoretical Production Ecology) up to January 2014, when I partially retired. I coordinated the reprogramming of courses at two major changes in our university in 1988-1989 and in 1998/1999, which comprised such activities as developing new course descriptions, balancing contents between courses, lecture scheduling over the BSc and MSc years in the curriculum, and tuning of contents with stakeholders. I am member of the Study Programme Committee (SPC) of Plant Sciences.
