Academic education on a high standard starts with professional teachers who are educated as researcher and as teacher. The Utrecht University achieves this standard by systematic research and evaluation of education and a culture of continual innovation.
The full offer of the Utrecht University for teachers to develop themselves and to improve their education, is accommodated in the Centre for Academic Teaching. The Centre works as a front office for all activities on this matter that take place in the university and stimulates continuous improvement of education. Teachers can find information, support and training aimed at teacher development and educational innovation. With this the Centre for Academic Teaching contributes to high qualified education as may be expected from a university, corresponding with the student from nowadays.
Manon Kluijtmans, Director van het Centre for Academic Teaching welcomes everyone and gives a short tour around the centre in the University Library at the Utrecht Science Park.
