September 19 we will organize with Windesheim a conference about the teacher of the future in De Balie in Amsterdam.
We designed the past year a U process in which students, teachers and the administration of Windesheim took a deep dive into the future of education. Together we organized sensing journeys, had presencing moments and teachers started to experiment with their students in line with their new insights. This let to some great video material and especially very enthusiastic students.
During the September meeting we want to explore with a group of approximately 100 innovators in education what the future role is of teachers. We see Steve Jobs Schools, the Kahn Academy, Universities without formal teachers so what does that mean for the one who was supposed to stand in front of the class room? We will explore the following questions:
- Who is the teacher of the future?
- How should he be educated?
- What does this mean for the Universities where they are trained?
The meeting is invitation only (so send me an email is you’re very interested with your motivation).
The meeting is the start of 5 more meetings in De Balie around education. During the evening of the 19th the IONA stichting will organize a dialogue meeting around education.
