TLC-FMG is part of UvA’s network of Teaching & Learning Centres. Together, the TLC support UvA educators in the areas of teaching professionalisation, educational innovation, knowledge sharing and university education research.
To stimulate professionalisation in higher education we offer various programmes and courses. This includes separate coaching and consultancy hours for educators to sign up for, and programmes such as the Workgroup Teacher Programme (WTP), PhD Teacher Programme and the UTQ (University Teaching Qualification, in Dutch: BKO).
In the field of innovation, The UvA TLC network offers several opportunities that support educators in education innovation. These include the UvA TLC Education grants, the Visible Learning Trajectories Programme, as well as various Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
Research makes an important contribution to evidence-informed education at the UvA and provides further development and improvement. Research fellows and other ongoing research projects provide insight into the impact of education innovation and professionalisation and insight in the experiences of teachers and students. Based on the research results, we can further improve UvA education.
Our team consists of representatives from Social Sciences and Child Development & Education alongside a Coordinator – thus ensuring that voices from across the FMG are equally represented. The TLC-FMG is co-directed by Dr. Jessica Taylor Piotrowski (Communication Science) and Drs. Sharon Klinkenberg (Communication Science).
We are located at Roeterseiland, REC C0.03. You can recognise us by the big orange sticker on our window. Come visit us!
