Keynote: Gert Biesta

Dr. Gert Biesta is Professor of Educational Theory and Pedagogy at the University of Edinburgh. He publishes on the theory of parenting and education, the methodology of social science research, democracy and citizenship, curriculum theory and policy, and teacher training.

In his keynote "Inclusion, diversity and equal opportunities: how perfect should education become?" Gert Biesta will raise some critical questions and concerns about what might be called the contemporary ‘social justice agenda’ for education. After all, if we better understand what the social justice agenda entails and where there may be bottlenecks or even limits to what can be achieved, we can at the very least be more realistic about our own role as teachers in all this. This, in turn, will also help to maintain a degree of realism in the education of future teachers.

Plan to join us for our exciting anniversary celebration!

  • When: Wednesday 31 August until Friday 2 September 2022
  • Where: NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, Meppel
