Does the teacher make the difference? 30 January 2014

Or is it the Christian teacher that makes a difference? Is this difference relevant in your classroom or subject?

‘The CHRISTIAN teacher makes a difference’ is the title of the Lectorate Christian Teaching conference (Driestar University for Teacher Education, Gouda) in cooperation with the Identity & Quality network (I&K netwerk).

In this conference (January 29, 2014) we focus on the necessity of reflecting on the content of (your) education. An additional aim of this conference is to enable christian teachers from primary and secondary schools to meet and consider effective strategies to unify their confession and profession in their respective subjects and classrooms.

The keynote speakers are David Smith, (Professor, Director of the Kuyers Institute for Christian Teaching and Learning) and Bram de Muynck (PhD, lector Christian Teaching Driestar University).The costs of this conference are 25 euro.
