Job description

In the past two years UM has gained a multitude of experiences leading to the conclusion that the use of technology can strengthen and enrich our problem-based-learning concept, if well designed. The recently initiated TEE-programme aims at embedding the lessons learned from the lockdowns, in a sustainable way. The main objective of the TEE-programme is to optimise the support for teaching staff, based on well-founded didactic principles and create room for innovation. By doing this, we aim to improve the implementation of blended learning within our PBL-context.

The TEE-programme operates under the banner of EDLAB, the Maastricht University Institute for Education Innovation. At EDLAB, we promote an optimal learning experience for students of Maastricht University by advancing the field of teaching and learning for both students and staff. We define innovation as the process of creating new ideas and practices to address educational needs – to do different things, and doing things differently.

EDLAB is located in the Tapijn Barracks, close to Maastricht’s city centre.

What are your duties & responsibilities?

  • Coordination and assistance in the TEE-programme sub-projects, for example creating a one-stop-shop for information and knowledge (e.g. website development), improving organisational structure for support, and providing a platform for exchange and inspiration (e.g. organising education events).
  • Facilitate and manage innovation pilots (e.g. with blended and hybrid learning).
  • Connecting UM staff involved in education innovation.
  • Provide educational and technological support to education staff, on for example educational design and the implementation of technology in education.
  • Work on stakeholder management and communication (e.g. do presentations and network meetings, in order to get commitment).
