Audiotracks/transcripts of academic experts

Here you can find al the audio-tracks (and some transcripts) from the international symposium Unfolding Human Potential, which took place on the 8th & 9th of Februari 2017 in Driebergen, Netherlands.

The recording follows the programme during these two days. The symposium program was divided into four chapters of 2,5 hours each, with the following themes:

1) The (true) nature of teacher-student interaction
2) The (true) nature of teacher education
3) The (true) nature of pedagogical leadership and school development;
4) The (true) nature of enabling educational research (towards a new scientific ethos).

The general discussion for each chapter is led by two interviewers (Luís Pinto and Hartger Wassink). They introduce the theme of the chapter, interview the practice representatives, lead the discussion of table hosts and experts during the break, and ask questions (if needed) to guide the reflections of the academic experts.

The conference host (Shanti George) leads the general discussion, and takes over from the chapter interviewers for the concluding reflections of the day, when the general academic experts give their reflections and where there is some room for broad dialogue with all participants.
