Journal Club

What does research tell us on how to design efficient teaching and learning (with technology)? One of TU Delft’s strategic goals is to enhance evidence-based education. To achieve this, there is a need for basic knowledge based on teaching and learning principles developed and studied in educational research. Therefore, the Academic Director of the Teaching Academy, Annoesjka Cabo, together with director of LDE-Center for Education and Learning, Marcus Specht, initiated the Journal Club.

In the Journal Club lecturers, researchers, practitioners, learning- and technology developers meet and discuss articles and books regarding innovation in education. Following a flipped-classroom approach, the participants read one article or chapter before coming to the Journal Club session where they discuss this with peers with guidance of a moderator. The selected articles are outstanding landmarks of learning science and instructional technology, and are amongst the most cited papers in the field of educational research and technologies.

Teaching Lab Tour

To acquaint you with your Teaching Lab, we would like to welcome all TU Delft lecturers and educational support staff to join our personalized tour to find out how you can make use of this fantastic facility and be supported in achieving your teaching goals.

Education is constantly evolving and TU Delft is one of the front runners in innovation in education. By making use of these developments and by evolving, testing and sharing your own innovations within our education community, we can continue to offer our students the best education.  In order to support this goal the Teaching Lab, opened its doors in September 2017 as education innovation hub: a testbed for lecturers. The Lab offers innovative spaces, multi-purpose meeting rooms and relaxed work spaces for lecturers to use. Moreover, it offers TU Delft lecturers the chance to experiment with the latest digital technologies such as Nureva – a brainstorming, multi-user collaboration tool, Cisco WebEx, an on-demand collaboration and teleconferencing tool and the DIY Studio, our mini fully equipped recording studio.

In addition to all facilities, you will get to know the Teaching Lab staff with whom you may well collaborate in the future. The tour will also delve into the rationale behind the creation of the Teaching Academy and Teaching Lab as well as a brief history of educational developments at TU Delft. All of this will be accompanied by good coffee and a light lunch.
