Special Interest Groups


The Teaching Academy supports TU Delft lecturers in exchanging their educational expertise through the facilitation of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to share lessons-learned and experiences on education. All TU Delft lecturers are welcome to join a SIG. Teaching Academy SIGs welcome new members throughout the year. The formation and the size of the group is never fixed. 

What is a SIG?

A SIG is a community of practice where a group of professionals (teachers) regularly meet around a shared interest.
These communities of practice are founded and formed by TU Delft lecturers and have a connection with academic teaching. A SIG focuses on a subject that is important to its members –attractive for potential new members – and relevant for the development of TU Delft education. 
During a SIG meetings, the group discusses their central topic and decides on the date/time and content for the upcoming meeting(s). Often these meetings are, for example, about: Sharing good practices, organising lectures and workshops, discussing recent publications, setting up research projects or visiting symposia.
