Robert van Wijk MSc

Policy Adviser
Teaching and Student Affairs

Since 1 May 2022 I have been working at the Faculty of Geosciences as a policy officer for teacher professionalisation. In that role I am involved in projects such as:

  • Implementation of the revised (senior) university teaching qualifications (UTQ and STQ): within the faculty, the training for the BKO became more flexible and the assessment is more focused on continuous development. I am also the secretary to the faculty's new teaching qualifications assessment committee. For more information, see the faculty pages about the UTQ and STQ.
  • Teacher information on the intranet: Information for teachers has been updated and restructured from existing manuals, web pages and shared folders of our three educational institutes. It can now be reached via the Teaching knowledge base.

If you like to discuss matters that affect the professionalisation of teaching, do not hesitate to contact me!

Before this I provided education as a coordinator academic competencesat the bachelor's porgramme in Computer Science at the University of Amsterdam. There I obtained my STQ and enjoyed leading various educational innovation projects, for example on the use of a digital portfolio or the use of applications such as FeedbackFruits for peer review.
