Exploring Education Innovation
- Enhancing Continuous Learning -
On November 29th, 30th, and December 1st, 2023, TU Delft hosts the TU Delft Exchange Week for Higher Education Institutions. During this three-day event we will focus on exploring innovations in education to promote continuous learning.
Enhancing Continuous Learning, Continuous professional development, Lifelong Learning. How do we at universities enable and facilitate the continuous development process of professionals in the worlds of teaching and beyond? What challenges do we see? And how do we overcome those challenges? This main topic is central to the upcoming TU Delft Exchange week.
We look forward to exchanging experiences on education innovation and Continuous learning for both teaching staff and professionals in various fields. Interaction, networking, exchange of experiences and diving into specific challenges and topics are key.

TAS came up with a 10 years transformation plan proposing a two-fold strategy: 1) governance structure for all parties involved in education spaces (education, real estate, IT, facilities), and 2) guidelines defined in a Cookbook Education Spaces based on contemporary pedagogies in collaboration with teaching staff and students.
