In 2010, a group of twenty Honors students enrolled in a course at the University of Amsterdam, with the vague description ‘The Learning Lab’. Though also providing for them a vast array of inspirational speakers, their course designer, Thieu Besselink introduced them to an increasing amount of chaos, leaving more and more space for the students to take over.
The outcome of this journey was a group of young pioneers whose trials and errors are now helping define a new educational landscape. This documentary shows their progression from talented students, to driven entrepreneurs and ultimately, directors of their own education.
