InScience Film Festival

Science Film Club

InScience and NEMO Kennislink have launched the online Science Film Club: every first Wednesday of the month we meet online at 7.30 PM to watch a science film together and discuss it with researchers and each other. The moderation is in the hands of NEMO Kennislink editors Anne van Kessel and Esther Thole. Participation in the online program is free, but registration is required.

Wednesday 7 July: 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.

‘Most Likely to Succeed’ – Wednesday 7 July, online from 19:30 – Suitable for all ages – English spoken and not (NL) subtitled – 86 min
