Two new Senior Fellows at the Centre for Academic Teaching and Learning
As of 1 September 2023, two new Senior Fellows will be appointed by the Executive Board: Dr. Liesbeth Bijlsma (faculty of Science) and Dr. Sebastiaan Steenman (faculty of Law, Economics and Governance). During their Senior Fellowschip, among other things, they work on a faculty and/or university-wide project to further improve education. With her project, Liesbeth wants to implement inquiry-based learning (IBL) in large knowledge-driven curricula to support students in the development of critical thinking skills. Sebastiaan’s project focuses on setting up a Utrecht University Skills Lab to take the REBO Skills Academy to a higher level university-wide.
