FeedbackFruits is proud to announce the hiring of Cameron Hope as Innovation Manager, effective 1 June 2022. He joins CEO, Ewoud de Kok, and the FeedbackFruits team in Amsterdam to drive the DoTank model with partners across Europe, Australia, and the USA, in the DoTank model.
The FeedbackFruits DoTank is a co-creation and innovation model that brings multiple partners together to build innovative pedagogical technology. Since the launch of the DoTank in 2016, 27 new tools, features, and modules have been built in partnership with educational institutions across 3 continents. Cameron will be responsible for developing the future of the DoTank and bringing education innovation to scale.
“We are at a tipping point,” Cameron says. “The pandemic incited a surge in educational technology investments, but the benefits of this rapid investment are not being sustained. The investments need to be structural and aligned with the pedagogical vision. Institutions across the globe are faced with an opportunity. To step forward and build the future of educational technology so that pedagogy is leading. To co-create the future of education, not leave it to others. To innovate responsibly, ethically, and with a focus on educational quality. This is what we facilitate with our DoTank partners.”
“I’m excited to be part of this team. As recent successes like the Automated Feedback tool built with Deakin University, Erasmus, and Hogeschool Rotterdam show, the DoTank brings the most innovative institutions together to build solutions that benefit the whole sector. FeedbackFruits is betting big on the capacity of the sector to create important solutions and I’m honoured to lead this effort with our partners into the future.”
“While higher education partners are familiar with the added value of co-creation of digital tools, for vocational education this concept is rather new but has become relevant in recent times. Specific innovation themes and DoTank projects will therefore be organized to get vocational education (MBO) on board as well."
Cameron joins after nearly 5 years at the Centre for Innovation at Leiden University, where he worked with Michelle Olmstead in education and organisation innovation. He sat on the Change Advisory Board for Leiden University’s Digital Learning Environment and played an important role in Leiden University’s education innovation and support program. Cameron was born in Australia and has been living in The Netherlands since 2015.
