Professional development for lecturers: where do you find it?
Utrecht University offers lecturers a large range of options for educational development, for instance, courses and workshops, but also programmes and online modules. The Centre for Academic Teaching and Learning (CAT) would like to bring these offerings together and make them easier to find. Do you have any tips? We would like to hear them! You can be of great help to us by answering 7 simple questions in our survey. Please do so before 5 November. Participation is anonymous.
New intranet page Interdisciplinary Education Programme
The Interdisciplinary Education Programme (IDO) is launching an intranet page dedicated to interdisciplinarity. Here you will find information about how we at UU define interdisciplinarity, its relevance to society and the academy, and what ambitions UU has for interdisciplinarity. You will also find links to relevant articles, tools and examples of interdisciplinary education. For example, you will find an informative animation, developed by the programme to introduce interdisciplinarity to students and faculty. The intranet page is frequently updated and expanded, so take a look regularly.
