The UvA Education Day is the place to share, discuss and anticipate inspiring ideas, projects and practical examples from education, and look ahead to the (near) future of education. This year’s central themes are student engagement and the international classroom. 

Student engagement

The aim of student engagement is to provide students with a rich academic and personal learning environment; this is at the heart of the UvA Vision on Teaching and Learning. It comprises everything the student needs to be academically successful, such as challenging education, activating learning and the feeling of being part of a community.

The international classroom

The UvA is internationally oriented and wants to reinforce the critical thinking and open intellectual attitude of its students through the international classroom. In this learning environment, language skills and diversity are inextricably linked to the input of various (scientific) perspectives on education. This also enriches students’ overall experience.
