CTL for novice and junior lecturers

Have you discovered a passion for teaching that you would like to develop further? At the VU Centre for Teaching & Learning (CTL), you can develop your teaching repertoire and gain a better understanding of who you are as a teacher. You will learn to provide even better guidance to your students as they develop into analytical and independent professionals.

Challenging and easy to access
On this easy-access teacher development programme, we work together to improve the quality of teaching. Learning is a shared experience. That’s why, for every programme, we offer a safe and inclusive environment that encourages reflection, challenges you and focuses on growth.

Who is it intended for?
The programmes below are aimed at starting teachers and junior lecturers who want to develop their teaching skills. If you have more than four years’ teaching experience, take a look at this page for lecturers with a UTQ to find a programme that suits you better.

Programmes for starting and junior teachers

  • Start-to-Teach Day
    During the Start-to-teach Day, you will delve into the kind of teacher you want to be. We closely look at what the VU defines as good teaching. We also equip you with tools and techniques that help in your early weeks of teaching. 
  • Incubator for Junior Lecturers
