Marijke van Oppen

Cross Cultural Trainer and Consultant HE , the Netherlands
Marijke van Oppen

I am Marijke van Oppen, an expert in interactive, creative workshops and training in cross-cultural development. I have been a Senior Educational Consultant and Intercultural Trainer at the Education Support Centre of Wageningen University & Research since 2000. I am currently responsible for programme diversity and flexibility of the 4TUCEE engineering education programme at Wageningen. I also have teaching and training experience, with a focus on inclusive education, in Russia, China, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Since 2007, I have been an active EAIE member and a speaker, trainer and chair at workshops, sessions and presentations. My goal is to use and share all these experiences, including a range of art-based and action-oriented methods, to develop skills and attitudes in all areas of higher education. Different methods can be effectively applied within higher education to create inclusive international communities, and international students’ challenges can be overcome through awareness, sensitivity and cross-cultural skills development.
