Education Debate

Personal development

The Education Debate, organized by GEWIS, is finally making a return! On May 30th, students and teachers will go head to head to discuss some of the toughest dilemmas in education. With staff from our department and university invited to watch the debate unfold, this is the chance to show what’s important for students.
Is online education the future of our university? Should the mandatory attendance of exams be discontinued? And would teaching sustainability to all students be beneficial? Multiple statements will be discussed in an interactive manner. Of course, the actual statements will be kept secret until close to the debate, but we guarantee a wide variety of topics!
Don’t feel like debating, but you are interested in listening? Then you’re also welcome. We ensure it will be interesting and interactive for all who wish to attend.

A debate training will be held prior to the actual debate. This training will be on the 18th of May in the evening. During this training you will learn how to properly formalize and structure your arguments. This will help you to make your arguments better to follow for the audience, but also for the jury. Who will judge you on your ability of debating and announce the best debater at the end. The best debater will be awarded with a lovely price.
