A University is “An institution at the highest level of education where you can study for a degree or do research”(Oxford Dictionaries)
A University is involved in both fields: research and education, but how is the balance between these two? Is the one more important than the other or not? How do they reinforce each other? This year the Education Day is about the interplay between research and education. Keynotes and workshops focus either on research about education, education in research, research and education, research in education or other possible perspectives.
The setup of the day will differ from other years. This year you will have more options to choose from and different activities will be presented simultaneously (activities such as: mini-lectures, workshops, debate sessions, try-outs, etc.). A timetable will be presented after the summer holiday. The programme starts at 08.45 until 17.30 and, just like on a festival, you decide when and what to join. Of course, we hope to see you the entire day!
Two international keynotes speakers are scheduled on this education day. The day will start with a key note from Maria Knutson Wedel from Chalmers University and the closing key note will be given by Pedro de Bruyckere from Belgium, he is the author of the book ‘Urban myths about Learning and Education'.
