Martijn de Waal Appointed ‘Persoonlijk Lector’

The Executive Board of the HvA has appointed Martijn de Waal as ‘Persoonlijk Lector’ within the Play & Civic Media Lectorate. Together with Lector Ben Schouten, he will further develop the research program of the lectorate.

The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences is the first university of applied sciences that has created such a position in order to give talented, doctoral (lecturer) researchers the opportunity to work in five years on a permanent appointment as a lecturer. The Play & Civic Media lectorate provides education and research on the themes: play & games, virtual reality and civic media (media that are used to solve social issues in a community). The appointment of de Waal, who has been a senior researcher at this research group since 2014, offers Play & Civic Media the opportunity to increase its strength in these areas.
