Dr. Ingrid Van Rompay-Bartels

I am a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow with ample international experience, and a passion for teaching and researching intercultural competencies and the mindsets necessary for global citizenship. With my team, I am promoting students' international experience to prepare them to navigate intercultural challenges in a globalized world at home.

I've taught and researched in multicultural settings through a Comenius grant for "Peer feedback in international classrooms." I specialize in developing Netiquette, Learning Outcomes, and Assessment Criteria, and serve as a sparring partner for Ingrid. Currently, I'm implementing these principles and contributing to the project's dissemination.

At HAN ISB, I advise individual study programs on internationalization of curriculum and policy plans. I assist in selecting international partner universities, initiating projects between universities and liaising staff mobility. My role in the Comenius project is to advise the project team on possible partner universities to collaborate with in this project.

I have been working at HAN for 14 years, as a senior lecturer of French and Intercultural Awareness at International Business. Since 2017, I am a teacher trainer at HAN School of Education, helping students to reflect upon intercultural challenges during their minors. My role within the project is to create reflection tools.

I am one of the education policy advisers of the academy ISB. My contribution to the Comenius project is modest, I review draft products and advise on their clarity and validity appropriate to the national IB programme framework.

As a student intern, I will assist in finalizing this research project’s dissemination phase. I will also co-create marketing communication materials and provide support for the CBWCB classes. My goal in this project is to learn as much as possible and to share my view with my colleagues to contribute to the project's positive impact.

In 2021 I was student intern for CBWCB, and later I wrote my Graduation paper with Dr. Van Rompay-Bartels as my company coach. Now, I manage the Digital Marketing Communications of the Comenius project, co-create educational content and organize the upcoming Dissemination Event in June.

Marcel Jansen supported Dr Van Rompay-Bartels during the grant application phase by offering advice about the best way to frame the "pitch" of Raising Global Citizens at Home.

Marlous van den Tooren acted as a bridge between the HAN UAS team and the vision for the Comenius project.


Last but not least, without the commitment and hard work of Dr Van Rompay-Bartels' first student assistants, Sadaf Rezwani and Lysette Peerlings, this project would not be where it is today.

Thank you!
