We are celebrating!
While we are all still enjoying a beautiful late summer, the start of the new academic year is already upon us and there is cause for celebration. On 1 September, the Centre for Academic Teaching and Learning will celebrate its five-year anniversary, together with our partner TAUU, which will celebrate its ten-year anniversary! Of course we cannot let that pass unnoticed. From September to December, we will celebrate this special occasion with various activities, especially with the lustrum party on 13 October. I hope to meet many of you there, because CAT is all of us: lecturers, students, didactic and technological experts, support staff, policy staff and social partners. In short, everyone who is committed to or feels involved in UU education. In the coming academic year, we will once again be working hard to support lecturers in their work and development. Together, we will bring education to a higher level, realise educational innovations and strengthen the knowledge base about university education in the various disciplines. Is something missing from our programme offerings? Do you have any ideas? Let us know.

Peer Observation programme for teachers
Teaching is often done individually: what happens in the classroom, stays in the classroom. Would you like to take a look at another teacher's work? Or would you like another teacher to observe you in order to provide feedback? This is possible with the Peer Observation programme.

A teacher’s guide for interdisciplinary orientation

Based on the booklet “Interdisciplinary Orientation; Learning to navigate beyond your discipline”, there is now a teacher’s guide to provide inspiration and to give suggestions for how to incorporate interdisciplinarity in your classroom. This guide can help with activity ideas that can provide students with an interdisciplinary orientation, provides suggestions to raise awareness, and helps to develop certain skills and attitudes.
