Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences

Welcome to the FMG’s Teaching & Learning Centre. On this website we provide teaching staff with information and inspiration on innovation in education.

The FMG-TLC is part of a constellation of TLC’s that are represented across the University of Amsterdam. In line with the core goals underlying the Teaching & Learning Centre, the FMG-TLC aims to develop and support initiatives designed to:

  1. foster knowledge sharing across the FMG,
  2. provide professional development for FMG educators,
  3. encourage innovation among FMG educators.

Please send an email to tlc-fmg@uva.nl and we’ll get back to you!

For teachers. By teachers.

Achieving Our Aims

To achieve our aims, the FMG-TLC annually plans a range of activities for FMG teachers. This ranges from larger events that tackle a topic of wide interest, to smaller more tailored workshops addressing a pressing need amidst a smaller cohort of the faculty. We also develop and collaborate with, TLC Central to offer teachers a wide range of free courses for professional development. Even further, we assist with the onboarding of new teachers as they join our faculty. As we aim to be a continued source of support throughout their teaching journey. Finally, with an eye towards the ever-increasing work pressure amongst faculty, we have several ongoing initiatives designed explicitly to address these challenges.
