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.

Uniting lecturers & educational initiatives at the Teaching Academy
A "new" face at the Teaching Academy
Since 1 January, the support team of the Teaching Academy has been strengthened with a new face. Gytha Rijnbeek has been working at TU Delft for 12 years and knows the university from different angles: as a student, as a study advisor and as an advisor within HR Talent & Development. As the new Teaching Academy programme manager, she will focus on uniting lecturers and educational initiatives together with Academic Director Annoesjka Cabo and the Teaching Academy team in the Teaching Lab.
Minister of Education, Culture and Science spotted in Teaching Lab
On 25 November Ingrid van Engelshoven Minister of Education, Culture and Science visited the TU Delft. Before she visited the Dreamhall, the minister had a meeting with students about student wellbeing and student success. Furthermore, there was a round table meeting in the Teaching Lab with lecturers on workload and digitalisation. Academic Director of the Teaching Academy, Annoesjka Cabo, spoke with her and told her how the Teaching Academy connects teachers with each other, about the numerous initiatives that are developed and implemented, and how that improves education at our university. Cabo: “The Teaching Academy is all about Education, I want to emphasise that this is the right time to develop new career opportunities within universities.”
