    Programma

    • 9.30 tot 10.45 – College ‘In gesprek met de leerling’ – Roeterseilandcampus (REC) A0.01
      De meeste leerlingen komen naar school voor hun vrienden, niet voor wat ze in de lessen krijgen voorgeschoteld. Klopt dat? Hoe kijken leerlingen anno 2019 tegen school aan? Wat is volgens hen een goede leraar? Welke leraren zijn ‘het ergst’? Hoe ziet een goede les eruit? Wat zijn de subculturen van tegenwoordig en welke rol spelen die? Hoe kijkt de nerd naar de emo en de gamer naar de straight-edger? In dit college vragen we het de leerlingen zelf. Een panel van ervaringsdeskundigen (bovenbouwleerlingen) zit klaar om al onze vragen te beantwoorden.
    • 11.00 tot 12.30 – Introductie master Educatie en Communicatie – Roeterseilandcampus (REC) C3.06
      Verschillende docenten van de opleiding zullen kort iets vertellen over de opleiding en het stagetraject. Ook zal er ruimte zijn voor het stellen van vragen.

Dissociation can be described as an estrangement of the own body and reality, which causes physical, mental and social detachment.'
