Robert E. Slavin – Success for All

Robert Slavin – A Portrait

Robert Slavin is a much quoted educationist, primarily because of his series of overview articles on what works in education – evidence-based education. He and his staff have translated the key findings into the educational program “Success for All”, which has already led to important improvements in language skills among over two million pupils, and thus to better learning careers and professional careers.

This is one of ten portraits we created for the University of Groningen on the occasion of its 400th anniversary. Each of the portrayed men and women was awarded an honorary doctorate. These videos express the personality and passion of these leading international professors in diverse fields of research.
