The FASoS Teaching & Learning Blog was set up by Patrick Bijsmans and Afke Groen in early 2018. They edited the blog together until early 2020, when Afke took on a new job at the Hans van Mierlo Stichting in the Hague.


The blog is currently being curated and edited by Patrick, together with Mirko Reithler.
