The VU Education Agenda and the VU Quality Plan aim to fully embrace this year's theme: "Striving for high-quality education".
Teachers and researchers are under increasing pressure which is partly due to the growing student population that becomes even more international and diverse. Other challenges include supporting education that is becoming more attractive, socially relevant and a contribution to a sustainable future. The VU Education Day 2020 aims to provide teachers with inspiration to deal with these dilemmas.
The VU Education Day event features two workshop rounds with many inspiring sessions scheduled between 10:30 and 17:00 in the Main building of VU Amsterdam. The program highlights a keynote by Dr Kristina Edström Associate Professor in Engineering Education Development at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Kristina Edström will discuss ways to intensify students’ learning without having to spend more time on teaching. She presents principles and best practices based on experience and research.
