On June 30th I retired from my post as a professor at the University of Iceland. I started there as a part-time teacher in September 1977, sharing my time equally between teaching experimental physics on the one hand and cognitive psychology and the psychology of learning on the other. After I obtained a permanent post in the department of education I moved more and more into the field of education, where I have stayed since.
The summer school for European teachers run by the European Council Pestalozzi Programme is a very ambitious and fascinating exercise. I have been invited to participate there twice and feel the participation intellectually very rewarding. Here are the notes from my introductory presentation this time. 06 24 JTJ Pestalozzi summer school June 2017
