Strategic network goals

The Centre for Academic Teaching and Learning serves as a centre of expertise, combining the shared expertise of all of its partners. In this context, it has formulated four strategic network goals:

1. Add value

Create added value for teacher development, educational innovation and educational scholarship by promoting the visibility and accessibility of member activities and by connecting partner initiatives to create new opportunities in innovation, exchange and funding.

2. Bring together

Bring together expertise on teaching and learning. Generate awareness and recognition for partners within the wider teaching community. Offer a central platform to connect the teaching community: bring teachers and support together, enhance formal and informal exchanges, and match teachers' needs to expertise and support at partner initiatives.

3. How adaptivity

Be sensitive and responsive to new and existing needs and developments on the road to enhancing teaching and learning.

4. Influence

Show leadership in academic teaching and learning by being a discussion partner for the University's Executive Board and Student & Academic Affairs Office, by representing Utrecht University nationally and internationally and by sharing expertise with other higher education institutions.
