About Teaching Academy

Mission & Core

The Teaching Academy is the network for and by educators of TU Delft with the mission to collaboratively enhance engineering education and drive education innnovations across faculties.

The Teaching Academy, represented by Annoesjka Cabo as Academic Director, has 4 key elements:


The Teaching Academy Community


The Teaching Academy Home: Teaching Lab


The Teaching Academy Programme


The Teaching Academy Facilitation Team


In carrying out the Teaching Academy mission the focus is to: 

  •   CONNECT   (ideas and people)
  •   SHARE  (knowledge and experience)
  •   SPOTLIGHT   (educators and educational initiatives, and experiments and innovations)
  •   EXPERIMENT   (in the Teaching Lab for example)

To connect, share, spotlight, and experiment the Teaching Academy runs two special programmes (The Initiative on innovation in Delft Engineering Education (IDEE) and The Kick-Start your Teaching programme), organises a diversity of events, facilitates communities, guides grants & awards, and strives for a great experience for educators online and in the Teaching Lab.

In doing so, the connection is also made with the didactic/educational knowledge support that is available at, among others, Teaching & Learning Services (TLS), New Media Center, Library, and the faculties.
