Registratie & Opening in the church
The doors open at 8:45 am. You’ll have time to register, pick up a programme booklet, and get a cup of coffee or tea before the day begins. The programme starts at 9:30 with a welcome from Tom Bennett and Jan Tishauser. Since the Keynote starting at 9:45 will be in Dutch, we have an English alternative:
You can come to the Auditorium (220) at 9:55 to view a (pre-recorded) keynote from Dylan Wiliam where he discusses how research can be useful for education.
If you arrive after 10:25, you can register in the Corlaer College building.
The rest of the sessions will take place at Corlaer College at the following address:
At this location, you can pick up a goodie bag. This contains Didactief magazine, a notebook, pen, etc.
Please note: Due to an event happening in the late-afternoon, it is not possible to park at the church.
This year, we unfortunately don’t have a supervised coat-check. That’s because researchED Nederland has grown substantially this year! We’re very happy about this, but that means we are taking alternative action because we cannot provide everything in one building this year. That’s why we have the opening in ‘De Fontein’ church, and the lunch in Corlaer’s VMBO building. Since you’ll need to walk outside for short stretches, you’ll definitely need your jacket with you on 11th January, and it’s not possible for us to provide a coat check as such. That’s why we’ve come up with the following plan:
Opening in the church
During the opening, you can hang your jacket on the back of your chair.
Sessions – Corlaer College (Havo-atheneum building)
In the school, there will be various places where you can hang up your coat/jacket. There are coat hooks in various places throughout the school, and there will be extra coat racks near the session rooms. Please remember where you hang your jacket.
Lunch (VMBO building)
It is approximately a 1.5 minute walk between the two Corlaer buildings. In the VMBO building is where lunch will be served. If you would like to wear a jacket to get to the VMBO building for lunch, we recommend hanging up your jacket near the main entrance.
Lost & Found
At reception, next to the main entrance, we will have a lost and found. If you’ve lost something or found something that isn’t yours, please bring it to this area.
Attn: the registration & opening will NOT take place at Corlaer College. The location for the opening is in the church next to Corlaer, called “De Fontein.”
The keynote by Monique Volman will be in Dutch.
Alternatively, you can come to the Auditorium (room 220) to view a (pre-recorded) opening keynote from Dylan Wiliam where he discusses how research can be useful for education.
The address for ‘De Fontein’ church is:
The rest of the sessions will take place at Corlaer College havo- en atheneumgebouw, which is approximately a 5-minute walk. The lunch will be in the VMBO building.

We ask that speakers and attendees are self-regulating on the day. Please move quickly from session to session to make sure sessions don’t run too long or start too late. In our experience, people in education are good at listening to the hypothetical bell…
