Education Team Event

28 September, Teaching Lab (Building 32A, between Pulse & IDE, entrance from Pulse)

Why this event?

We want to focus less on the "I" and more on the "we", as most achievements in academia and in education are not individual but team efforts. This event is organized to spotlight the education teams and their innovative projects. It aims to share experiences and the opportunity to network across faculties.

For whom?

This event is for this year's and last year's nominees for the Education Team Award as well as other involved and/or interested TU Delft academic, teaching and support staff.
