Are you ready for a few days of rest and space for yourself in a beautiful location in nature? Do you need a break from your daily teaching practice?

To reflect on yourself and the contribution you make to education and society? To gain new energy and inspiration together with colleagues and broaden your horizon? Join the VU Education Retreat.

The VU Education Retreat is for all teaching staff at VU Amsterdam. To relax, to reflect and to (re)connect with your role. Two days of personal and professional development at a beautiful location in nature together with fellow teachers at VU Amsterdam. The next education retreat is on November 10 and 11, 2022. The retreat is organized by LEARN! Academy as part of the A Broader Mind initiative at VU Amsterdam. Personal development is at the core and we are happy to be able to offer this opportunity to our educational colleagues.

Retrospective previous retreat
On May 9 and 10 we organized our first 2-day educational retreat for a group of 13 teachers from the VU Amsterdamat a quiet location in nature. The programme was focused on vitality, reflection and inspiration. Our intention was to create space to unwind, to become aware of what is important and therefore feel more connected to colleagues and the university as a whole. The special place in nature, and our mindfulness based exercises gave the participants the opportunity to unwind.

Comment from a participant:
"I enjoyed the varied exercises that helped to find balance between my heart, body and mind. Wonderful connection with VU Amsterdam after corona. Other participants appreciated the opportunity to slow down and (re)connect with a sense of freedom and creativity."
