He’s the visionary behind the learning communities and the ‘flipping the classroom’ method. According to Mazur, education is not simply a transfer of information. The important step is assimilating that information and applying it to a different context. But that doesn’t happen in most lectures. In his classes, students think about a question in silence and, afterwards, discuss it together. Google Maps. China gaat langste tunnel bouwen. 25/03/2015 RUG in China. In short.

In particular, ‘the timeline, the go/no go – decision, a risk analysis, the level of academic freedom, the quality assurance of the programmes, and the impact on the RUG itself’ were cited as issues that had not been adequately addressed by the University so far.

English professor John Flood wonders if the RUG shouldn’t have been a bit rude about the whole human rights issues thing rather than politely ignoring it.

Mooie tirade van Kees Willemen hieronder – notpicnic
Kees Willemen · Politiek tekenaar/journalist at Self-Employed Studentenpartijen , waren jullie stoned of zo , toen jullie voor Yantai stemden.? Iedere dag voortaan zullen jullie aan den lijve voelen waar jullie voor gestemd hebben. Yantai is een krankzinnig risicovol avontuur van dit College van Bestuur met niet te voorziene gevolgen voor de personeelsbezetting hier aan de RUG.Het personeel is niet voor niets tegen. Gezellig les leven in een land waar studenten met tanks zijn platgereden.Waar geen vrij internet bestaat! Toen die coneindig veel doden vielen op het Plein voor de Hemelse Vrede en er sloten bloed vloeiden, toen dat gebeurde, stond het hele Academieplein barstensvol met jullie voorgangers.Van Vindicat die de demonstratie trok tot de GSB .Jullie voorstemmen is echt het dieptepunt van zestig jaar studentenbeweging. SHAME ON YOU, DUMBO"S!!! Ga fietsen, verdomme... Like · Reply · 2 · Jun 25, 2015 11:03pm – notpicnic

Kees Willemen · Politiek tekenaar/journalist at Self-Employed fb comment Quote van de week! " Een partij die een miljoen euro betaalt, mag verwachten dat de hoogleraar onderzoek doet op dat terrein." Heeft onze Grote Voorzitter nog nooit gehoord van het aanvangsprincipe van elk wetenschappelijk onderzoek.: wetenschap begint bij het stellen van de juiste vragen. . De autonomie van wetenschap begint met het zelf kunnen bepalen welk terrein waard is onderzocht te worden en welke vragen gesteld moeten worden. Zo,niet dan bepaalt de financierder wat voor vragen er worden gesteld. Kortom deze tweede Groningse universiteit is al geen academische instelling meer nog voor hij begonnen is. Contaminatie vanuit China dreigt, voorspel ik.Want als financierders daar 'succes'boeken met het onderwerpen van onderzoekers aan hun vunze doeleinden, springt dit virus naar Groningen over.Zijn we leuk in de aap gelogeerd. Dankjewel Sibrand.... – freeman
