November 25th 2020 The most important question of our time is: how can we offer all pupils as many equal opportunities as possible? A challenge with different perspectives such as: “The knowledge gap", “The expectation gap" and “The equity gap". Making Shift Happen 2020 will, based on the central theme of Closing the Gap, provide current insights into this, share successful approaches with you and provide solutions.

Making Shift Happen turns 10!

Together with 10 speakers from home and abroad, we zoom in on these themes: What are the critical points in our current system and curriculum? What are the factors that increase and decrease differences? How can we organize high expectations for all students? And what does this require from the leadership, the school and the teacher in front of the class?

With this anniversary edition we touch the core of our current society. It is up to you to make the shift!
