Getting to Know Hans



What was your first job? What did you learn from it?

My professional background
is in education policy and analysis, not classroom teaching. But an early, formative experience was talking to large groups of educators about forthcoming policy directive. I learned to know my content, and to know my audience.


What sparked your interest in work-based learning?

I benefited greatly from work-based learning experience in editing and publishing my high school newspaper, and also an internship in college at a television station. I learned many transferable skills in planning, problem-solving, and executing projects. I also learned what I liked and didn‘t like relating to career options. That‘s why I‘m motivated for employers to be involved in education at a larger scale so more students can get these

kind of early, formative experiences with business and industry.


What missteps would you caution others to avoid as they work to promote or develop work-based learning opportunities?

Conflict avoidance is the
most common mistake I
see among educators and education leaders. Engaging in constructive dialogue around difficult issues is essential to move your organization forward. On a personal level, make sure to deal with internal problems and relational problems, because left unattended they will fester and grow and ultimately, diminish your life and your professional work.
