The TU Delft Teaching Academy is the community of teachers and teaching staff. With the Teaching Academy we bring education development activities together under one roof, accelerate initiatives and strengthen collaborations with others. Because at TU Delft, we approach education like we approach research: experiment and share findings.
The Teaching Academy offers a variety of services and programs to help teachers. It will have its own home in our new Teaching Lab, with spaces for experimentation, collaboration and exposure.
