In 2019, the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) presented a position paper on the need for a new approach to recognising and rewarding academics. The number of publications should no longer be the main measure for academic success and there should be more emphasis on the importance of other domains in which academics are active, such as education.

Endorsing the need for more varied academic careers, the ComeniusNetwerk has formulated a number of recommendations for a better recognition and reward of teaching. On the afternoon of April 17, we will discuss these recommendations with some of the key partners in the field of higher education, such as the VSNU, The Young Academy and Ruth Graham. The afternoon is also meant to work out the ComeniusNetwerk recommendations in more detail with all participants.

Parallel sessions (15.00 - 16.00)

The parallel sessions aim to refine topics and discuss dilemma's arising from the recommendations.

1. Teaching as an academic expertise
In this session, we will look into indicators for the different phases in the development of teaching expertise.

2. Perspectives for junior and/or temporary staff
In this session, we will discuss concrete measures to support e.g. PhD students, junior lecturers and postdocs with an interest in education.

3. Rethinking the relationship between teaching and research
In this session, we will discuss both how teaching can enrich research and how a proper education practice itself has a research component.

4. Tracks not traps
In this session, we will discuss how to facilitate the possibility of switching foci during an academic career.

5. Agents of change 
In this session, we will discuss the role of change agents in higher education and NRO will present their research into the effects of the Comenius program for academic careers.

Organizations involved

Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU)
In the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), Dutch universities work together towards a strong university sector. The 14 Dutch universities within the VSNU show the outside world how they fulfil their social function, formulate shared ambitions relating to academic education and research and valorisation, and lobby for the preconditions needed to realise these ambitions. More information on the website of VSNU.

International Teaching Framework
The 16th and the 17th of April university leaders, institutional change agents and educational experts from across the world meet at the Trippenhuis. This initiative led by Ruth Graham aims to improve the recognition and reward of university teaching worldwide. Information on previous meetings is given here.
