Expertise, Support and Knowledge Exchange

EDLAB fosters a culture of education innovation and development at UM for both teaching staff and students.

We offer a diverse range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for teaching staff, including workshops, training courses, and online resources. Additionally, we provide education innovation and research grants as well as fellowships. Moreover, we host conferences, seminars, the annual UM Education Days, and interactive Teach-Meet and Student-Meet sessions. These events provide valuable opportunities for both staff and students to network and gain insights from experts in the field.

Our online magazine, edUMinded, serves as a platform to showcase the perspectives and experiences of the Teaching & Learning community at Maastricht University and to trigger ongoing dialogue and engagement with education enthusiasts in Maastricht and beyond.

UM Education Days

The UM Education Days are like a great candy shop, where we can look at what others have done, have created, and showcase our own work.

Assessment, tutoring, advising, technology, inclusivity, feedback, educational design, and much more! EDLAB's annual UM Education Days are a dedicated moment for the Maastricht University Teaching & Learning community to come together and exchange, share, learn, discuss and enjoy all things education. Visit our UM Education Days 2023 recap.

Maastricht University offers a range of Excellence Programmes for ambitious, motivated, and high-performing students. At EDLAB, we further develop, implement, and centrally coordinate these programmes. In a challenging, interdisciplinary learning environment, students engage in extracurricular opportunities that help them develop their talents, increase their knowledge, and strengthen their CVs.
