The Teaching & Learning Lab is an initiative of the Freudenthal Institute and Educate-it, partners of the Centre for Academic Teaching of Utrecht University. The TLL also cooperates with various innovative companies.
The Freudenthal Instituut (FI) is part of the Faculty of Science at Utrecht University (UU). Together with partners both within and outside the UU the FI contributes to innovation and improvement of Dutch science education. The mission of the FI is to contribute to high quality education in mathematics and the science subjects through education, research and valorisation.
Educate-it is a UU-wide programme for and by lecturers and students, that supports them to strengthen their teaching and adapt it for the future of education. Educate-it supports lecturers both in practical use of IT-tools that have already been proven to be of value in education by other lecturers at the UU, and in (re)designing their lectures for blended learning.
The Centre for Academic Teaching is a central organisation of the Utrecht University that serves as an umbrella for a range of existing parts and activities of the university that aim for academic teachers and complements with new activities where that is necessary. The Centre serves all teachers, works across the board of the university and over the borders of the faculty’s and needs the involvedness of teachers. The Centre had a boards and a staff and cooperates with partners within the Utrecht University that aim for educational innovation and teacher development.
The Teaching & Learning Lab cooperates with several innovative companies. This means the TLL always has the latest educational equipment, and teachers and lecturers are able to test new products in practice.
At the moment we enjoy our cooperation with the following companies:
Ricoh – e.g. innovative beamers, smart table
HP – e.g. Sprout computer
Ultimaker – e.g. 3D printing
The TLL is also one of the six 3Ducation HUBs in the Netherlands. This means that schools can use the 3D printer in the lab in lessons.
