How to reward teaching excellence?
Many universities are struggling with the issue how to balance research and education in career paths. Partly this is caused by a strong focus on research. The lack of good measures for educational achievements is also a reason why education efforts are not valued as much. A snapshot with a needs analysis of the University of Twente was presented based on a number of interviews. Besides a similar pattern of the present situation, there were also clear expectations that change would come. Options to move forward were then presented and discussed. Ruth Graham developed a template for the Royal Academy of Engineering using international examples and literature. The 4-level model for the educational careerside was received well, in particular because measures were included. Starting an Academy for Teaching & Learning like the University of Lund is another option that will be investigated. Ed Brinksma (rector magnificus) concluded that we now have tools to make the next steps in rewarding teaching.

Investigating Interdisciplinary Engineering Education
The 3TU.CEE-project 'Investigating Interdisciplinary Engineering Education' looks into the current state of affairs around interdisciplinarity at the three universities of technology. Interdisciplinary engineering education is currently seen as a fruitful way to prepare contemporary students to become engineers of the future. The first question that immediately comes to mind is about the definition of 'interdisciplinary'. And also, how does interdisciplinary relate to notions of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary?
