On November 10th, we are organising a farewell to mark the retirement of Professor Frank de Jong. You are very welcome to attend.

Knowledge-creating, artistic, opinionated and engaged

Frank works as Associate Professor of Responsive Learning, Knowledge Creation and Ecologically Intelligent Action, Academic Director of the Master’s programme in Learning and Innovation at Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Wageningen. He is also Professor of Responsive Learning & Knowledge Construction at the Open University. In addition to the academic session, we have put together a programme that is a bit like Frank: knowledge-creating, artistic, opinionated and, above all, engaged.

Prior to Frank de Jong's formal farewell, the Open University is organising the Trends Conference: Co-creative Knowledge Development: Through Dialogue and Image Towards Meaningful Action.
