The world around us is changing rapidly and education presents various challenges. Manon Mostert, director of Stadslab Rotterdam, has been designing education for HBO, VO and occasional PO for 7 years.
Manon is convinced that education benefits teachers who approach their profession with a design attitude. She has been doing research in the past two years as part of her Master's degree in Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy. Her thesis was published last January in collaboration with Boom Uitgeverij, with the title: ‘Hey Teacher, Find Your Inner Designer’. Manon pleads with her book for the abolition of big-bang, top-down implementations and, with her design approach, gives teachers instruments to change education from the inside, at the core, as a designer.
