Sometimes you hear or read about another perspective on a scientific problem, on a didactic approach, on a technical problem or on a political issue, of which you think ‘I’ve never looked at it like that before, but there’s something in it’. It makes you doubt. Do I have to make up another mind?

In this new section NT&L gives the floor to a teacher, a student, someone from the supporting staff, a program director, whoever, as long as the issue at hand touches on education (at the VU). All we ask is a surprising look, a different view, an eye opener.

Every month a different person will address an intriguing issue. Would you like to make a contribution? Please contact onderwijswerkplaats@vu.nl.
