VU Network for Teaching and Learning

VU Network for Teaching & Learning (VU NT&L) is VU’s education network with a mission to be a thriving and inspiring VU Education Community! Faculties, lecturers, students and support services such as LEARN! Academy, UB, SOZ, IT and FCO/AVC work together in the network to achieve excellent education at VU.

VU NT&L, better known as VU Education Lab, started on March 1, 2019, led by Gerhard van de Bunt (FSW and chair KnowVU), Silvester Draaijer (SOZ), Hester Glasbeek (LEARN! Academy) and Arjan Schalken (UB, until January 1, 2020).
We work along four lines:

  • Education Lab – we invite teachers and teacher support staff to the Education Lab to ask their questions, share their knowledge. This is how we get to know each other better. You can also browse the limited education library and grab a cup of coffee. There is always someone present on behalf of NT&L to welcome you.
  • Educational culture – we make sure that everyone involved in education gets to know each other better by organizing theme-based and general education meetings, and sharing the content through the website.
  • Educational quality – we encourage and organize educational activities and training. We identify educational trends within and outside the VU and respond to them. We present the latest ICT&O products.
  • Educational innovation – we help teachers think about, develop and test small and large innovations in the field of education, didactics and ICT tools.
