The thoughts and actions of teachers and the quality of their didactic-pedagogical conduct is decisive in the realisation of good, quality education. Meanwhile, the government is strongly focused on the ever increasing improvement of students’ academic performance. According to Ron Oostdam, this so-called ‘cognitive performance thinking’ results in the quality of education being primarily determined on the basis of examination results. In his inaugural lecture as professor of Learning and Instruction, Oostdam will speak about the factors that influence learning and instruction, as well as their returns.
R.J. Oostdam, professor of Learning and Instruction: Zorgen voor de juf en mees. Van onderwijzen naar leren.
This event will be open to the public.
(Please note: this inaugural lecture will be held in Dutch.)
