VU Education Day

February 8, 2018

Vrije Universiteit, main building

The VU Education Day will be held on 8 February. The annual VU Education Day celebrates the university's core task of teaching and learning. This year's theme is Crossing borders in the new world.

The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is rapidly becoming more diverse and international. Our university provides a welcoming environment to students and lecturers with different backgrounds and increasingly from abroad. Our students and alumni interact in every conceivable capacity throughout this diverging reality. Our students and lecturers find themselves in a continual process of crossing borders. The cross-pollination they engage in can enrich our personal lives and expand our appreciation of academic endeavour.

Everyone who has a role in teaching and learning at VU or is a partner in some way, is warmly invited to participate and be inspired by the keynote of Oscar van Weerdenburg and the many parallel sessions. That also applies to VU’s partners in the Aurora network.
