Living and working

I live in Amsterdam and I have worked at the Horizon College in Alkmaar. On this school (and its predecessors), I have given many years biology lessons. From 1988 I also give classes on ICT, the first several years on HAVO / MBO and VHBO From May 2000 I am teaching at the ICT College of the Horizon College. Here I give ICT courses about HTML (webdesign) and Service Desk. Materials for ICT or Biology students can be viewed and downloaded  on my website

From August 1, 2007 I work one day a week at the Gaming Works in Bodegraven, with pupils of MBO colleges.

Until August 1, 2002 I had a role in supporting colleagues in the College ICT field, especially in developing up websites, multimedia applications and the construction of databases. ..........



From June 1, 2002, a number of activities have been continued by my own company, F. Triep Multimedia

Besides websites I have created a number of multimedia applications in Authorware. For the product Molecular Genetics (A Multimedia program on the construction and operation of DNA for Biology courses) I have made a separate website,  "Moleculaire Erfelijkheid/Molecular Genetics".......

Molecular Genetics

From August 2003 until January 2006 I worked on the project Front Office Medewerker (=front office employee) of the Horizon College. Besides the Horizon College,  the colleges ROC AŽdam and ROC Eindhoven, and the the municipalities of the town Alkmaar, Heerhugowaard, Schagen and Wieringen and the Chamber of Commerce (northwest region) and the Ecabo were in the project. This has yielded a simulation, uesed by the Legal Services of some MBO colleges. The simulation is now one of the products of the Stichting Praktijkleren in Amersfoort. I am involved in the further development of the simulation Front Office Medewerker as webmaster and web developer (development of the website and the database).

Besides my work I have many hobbies, including hiking, traveling, breeding of plants,  writing about plants, photography and sculpture. On this Web location I also pay attention to these activities. In 2009, the building of this website and its (sub) sites will be continued, so come and check regularly..
