About the VU Teaching Café
The VU Teaching Café is a place where everyone with a heart for education meets, where teachers make new contacts and maintain existing contacts, where teaching experiences are exchanged, where new inspiration is gained at workshops and where colleagues from the UBVU, AVC, LEARN! Academy, SOZ, IT and KnowVU are ready to give advice. All teaching questions can be discussed in the Teaching Café: large or small, innovative or everyday. Of course, you can only come and get a cup of coffee. The VU Teaching Café is an event that takes place twice a month on Monday from 13:00 – 15:00 hours. The VU partners involved – UBVU, AVC, LEARN! Academy, SOZ, IT and KnowVU – alternately provide inspiration sessions on teaching topics. Registration is not required, but it is appreciated: registration form.
Setup of the meeting of the VU Teaching Café
The first hour of the VU Teaching Café (13:00 – 14:00 hours) consists of a seminar or workshop (the inspiration session) in which interested parties can participate free of charge. The hour after the inspiration session can, depending on the subject, be set up as room for discussion or as a practical hour. During a practical hour, those present can get to work themselves with the tips and materials they were given during the inspiration session. During the VU Teaching Café, teachers can walk in for a cup of coffee, they can contact the advisors of the VU partners involved (UBVU, SOZ, AVC, LEARN! Academy, IT and KnowVU) with various teaching questions and they can catch up with colleagues from all faculties.
