Education, Mind Standardization?

This debate will bring together two teams composed of RUG staff members and students on the proposition: Increasing standardization in our education system undermines diversity.

This debate series is organized in collaboration with Mindwise. With this debate series we aspire to build a platform that will facilitate discussions on relevant topics, encouraging risky and informed dialogue, and creating a sense of community that will transcend disciplinary and structural boundaries.
