HZ meeting with educationalist Gert Biesta (Dutch)

On Tuesday, 27 September, from 3 to 5 p.m., educational pedagogue Gert Biesta will visit the HZ Edisonweg 4 in Vlissingen. During an interactive presentation he takes everyone with him in his body of thought.

The visit of Gert Biesta is part of the critical reflection on the current educational vision of the HZ, the Student- and Process-oriented Education (SPO). Biesta's well-known three-pronged approach, qualification, socialisation and subjectification, is one of the foundations of SPO. In order to critically examine our interpretation of Biesta's work, a group of HZ colleagues have been reading Biesta's book "The Return of Teaching" together over the past few months.

On 27 September, the conversation about Biesta's work will continue together with the master himself. You are welcome to join and be part of the interactive programme with Gert Biesta.

Register in advance

You can register via the online registration form. The meeting will be in Dutch.
