New edition Science Film Club with film Most Likely to Succeed
InScience and NEMO Kennislink have launched the online Science Film Club: every first Wednesday of the month we meet online at 19:30 to watch a science film together and discuss it with researchers and each other. On July 7 at 7.30 PM we will screen Most Likely to Succeed (Greg Whiteley, 2015).
Most Likely to Succeed
Are our education systems ready for radical renewal? And how should this change take shape? Most Likely to Succeed (Greg Whiteley, 2015) examines the American education system from a historical perspective. On the basis of examples of unorthodox forms of education, this stimulating documentary opens up the debate about contemporary education. Is the current learning model still up to date?
Education in the Netherlands
After the film, we enter into a dialogue about education in the Netherlands. Should the Dutch education system be overhauled? Are we too focused on passing tests? And how do you determine when an educational model is successful? We conduct this conversation together with two experts. Monique Volman is a professor of educational science at the University of Amsterdam. In her work, she focuses on connecting research and educational practice. Harold Bekkering is a professor of cognitive psychology at Radboud University. He wrote the book ‘De lerende mens’ about the future of education.
This program is suitable for all ages. The film and talk are in English, without Dutch subtitles.
