The UvA Education Day is an event to share, discuss and anticipate inspiring ideas, projects and practical examples from education, and look ahead to the (near) future of education. The annual Education Day is organized for everyone within the UvA who is involved in education, such as teachers, other education professionals and students.

Celebration of education

The UvA Education Day is a celebration of education. Colleagues from all faculties are invited to participate. Together, we focus this day on the importance of education. In a relaxed and convivial manner, we delve into an annually changing topic or theme, which is the central focus of the Education Day.

Purpose of the UvA Education Day

Do you participate in the UvA Education Day? Then you will go home at the end of that day with a feeling of connection with colleagues, with education in general and with the UvA. In the process, you take a lot of newly acquired knowledge with you. It is a day of conversation, wonder and inspiration. Substantive themes are central, but also the convivial reunion with colleagues while enjoying interesting keynotes, workshops, lunch & drinks.
