19 October Education day 2017 University of Twente
A University is involved in both fields: research and education, but how is the balance between these two? Is the one more important than the other or not? How do they reinforce each other? This year's Education Day is about the interplay between research and education. Keynotes and workshops focus either on research about education, education in research, research and education, research in education or other possible perspectives.

Workshop Teacher Coaching on 3 July
Professional Identity begins to form when students start their academic study. Although addressing the Professional Identity Development (PID) of students can be very beneficial to students, it seldom is the explicit aim of educational programmes and courses. There is little empirical knowledge available to inform teachers, educational developers and programme directors on how to foster PID and on how to embed it in a course or an educational programme adequately. Against this background, Migchiel van Diggelen and Christina Morgan, studied how teacher coaching, aiming to foster students' professional identity development, was implemented in the departments of Industrial Design and Computer Science. The goal of the project was to gain insight into useful features for coaching models and to learn what good coaching entails.

Workshop strategies for interdisciplinary teaching and learning
There is a need for engineers who are not afraid to ask critical questions, who can work together well and look beyond the boundaries of their own field. This means students need to learn more about integrating and applying knowledge, methods and skills from different subject areas and multiple sources.
