Doctoraatsverdediging Fien De Smedt


The public doctoral defense of Fien De Smedt took place on 21 May 2019. Within her PhD, the focus was on measuring and promoting writing of children at the end of primary education. Her research is specifically aimed at mapping the didactics used in Flemish writing education and the cognitive and motivational challenges that students experience at the end of primary education. She also investigated the impact of explicit, direct instruction and peer-assisted writing on the writing performance and writing motivation of these students.   We wish to congratulate Fien on her doctoral degree!
