Paul Ketelaars to give keynote at ‘De Nacht van het Onderwijs’
The first edition of ‘De Nacht van het Onderwijs’ (The Night of Education) will take place at KINO in Rotterdam on March 31, 2017. Part of the programme will be a keynote speech on the future of learning environments by Paul Ketelaars, partner at Mecanoo.
The lecture will focus on new developments in learning and how these can be supported through well-designed learning environments. In today’s educational system, no semester is the same when it comes to the curriculum or the teaching methods. Learning is no longer limited to a single activity. Therefore, the traditional classroom will no longer do. Learning environments should be designed in such way that they can respond to changing needs, both in the short and long term.
‘De Nacht van het Onderwijs’ celebrates all aspects of education and runs from 8pm until 6am. The programme consists of debates, expert meetings, films, performances and more. Everyone that feels involved with education is welcome to participate. The event has been organised by the City of Rotterdam and is part of the ongoing Rotterdam City of Education platform.
