International Class of 2018 kick-off! On 13 September 2018

On september 5th the International Class of 2018 kicked off. Twelve students, from five different country's will focus on the meaning of christian education and what it means to be a christian educator.

The International Class started last 4 and 5 september with an introduction week in which the students could get to know each other and where the first classes started. For seven international students, from Indonesia, Ghana, Romania and Nepal, and five of our own pabo students, an exciting time has started.

Vision on christian education

Together they will get a better understanding of the value of Christian education and will become more aware of their own ideas and visions on education.
Questions like: what does it mean to be a Christian educator, how do I practice my ideas en how do I transfer them and how does this manifests itself in different contexts? These are the main focus points for these students in the upcoming weeks.
In the near future we will introduce some of the students to you and tell more about their experiences, so keep an eye out for this on our website!

We wish all students the best of luck during the International Class! Are you interested in participating in the International Class? Check the webpage!
