News from the teaching community TAUU
Centre for Academic Teaching changes to: Centre for Academic Teaching and Learning
The Centre for Academic Teaching (abbreviated to CAT) has rapidly become a familiar name in the UU. Following an extensive and successful internal and external review of the Centre, carried out and completed in 2021, it was decided to add the term 'learning' to the name. After all, learning is the goal around which all activities for the teacher and the education ultimately revolve. It is also consistent international practice to include Teaching and Learning as a single term in the name of similar centres.

The Westerveld Framework for interprofessional feedback

To foster feedback engagement, an essential task for educators is supporting learners in receiving, making sense of, and using feedback information. Giving feedback information (by peers, colleagues, and faculty), should facilitate that same understanding and actionability. Dialogue – the ongoing exchange of ideas and information – can be a vehicle for this process, especially in practice settings, where the roles of giver and user of feedback information can swiftly and dynamically alternate. The Westerveld framework contains feedback dialogue principles for both the user-, and giver side of this dynamic process represented by seven central criteria.
