Education day

Inspiring Generations

In May 2017, the University of Amsterdam is organising the first Education Day for everyone within the UvA who is involved in education: lecturers, education professionals and students. This knowledge-sharing event coincides with an updated version of the UvA vision on teaching and learning.

The UvA Education Day is the perfect place for UvA lecturers to share and discuss inspiring ideas, projects and practical examples from education and to look ahead at the (near) future of education. The UvA Education Day 2017 marks the start of a tradition and will be held every spring.


The day consists of a varied afternoon programme which is currently being developed with lecturers from all faculties of the UvA and students from the Central Student Council. The programme for the day is outlined below. More detailed information will be provided as soon as it is available.

After the opening, the Education Day will begin with a plenary session in which four current themes related to UvA Education will be presented in the form of TED talks. This will be followed by two rounds of one-hour parallel sessions relating to these four themes. These will have different formats such as workshops, short lectures & discussions or panel discussions. 

The content of these sessions will be provided by UvA lecturers through a call for proposals. The day will end with an interactive plenary session and drinks.

The official language of the conference is English.
