HUL - Teaching Practice Network
Would you like to exchange ideas and network?
In research, there's a vibrant exchange of ideas and networking that adds immense value. This successful model can also be applied to the realm of university education: Teachers in higher education can mutually benefit from each other's expertise and skills. To ensure that collaboration and networking in education lead to added value rather than increased workload, it's crucial to choose the right approach. In the following table, you'll find some inspiring possibilities that can help guide you, and we're more than happy to provide further guidance on these as well.
