Johan Kegler applies his educational experience to Ocean College. He believes that learning is done best through individual and practical methods and should always include personal development.
In 2008/2009 Johan was a teacher and project leader on a similar project and through this experience he knows the route and the life on the ship. Since then he has not been able to ignore the potential behind such a project, which led him to design Ocean College. He is convinced that the current school system does not adequately prepare students for life and the career world.
Johan connects his understanding of the multifaceted aspects of learning, with his experience as a trainer in rowing. He has studied history, politics, art, and media sciences as well as sport sciences, which he has applied alongside his theoretical education to create Ocean College.
