Vision on Learning and Teaching


How can education at UT empower students to contribute to a better world? And how can UT’s commitment to making a positive impact on society through technology, strengthen that contribution?

The ‘UT Vision on Learning and Teaching’ offers guidance, outlining how we can equip students with ‘more than a degree.’ Taking the challenges of our time as starting point, it places three goals at the heart of our education: learning by doing, building inclusive communities and self-development. Interconnected like the rings of a Borromean knot, these three goals form a roadmap to achieve our UT mission: to be a people-centred university of technology that empowers society through sustainable solutions. The UT Vision on Learning and Teaching provides a basis for strategy, investments, and the implementation of educational activities.

Thematic meetings

During the academic year 2023-2024, we organise several thematic meetings to support you in implementing the Vision on Learning and Teaching. The first meeting on DIGITALISATION was held on the 26th of June. The second one is on 30 October 2023 in LA2409 at Langezijds. The theme for the meeting is FLEXIBILISATION in education. Depending on the registrations, we will choose the location. Below you can find the programma and sign up.
