Seminar Working together on professional knowledge development

SMAAKMAKER XXL - A full day program for higher education professionals


The development of higher professional education requests active collaboration between researchers and lecturers. During this seminar lecturers and researchers will collectively (further) develop their ideas for the connection between research and teaching to benefit their students.

Onderzoek in onderwijs

After an opening keynote two ‘wonderful but extreme’ examples are presented as sources of inspiration. During the afternoon emeritus professor Mick Healey will guide disciplinary teams of lecturers, researchers and students to shape their own projects for the further integration of research and education to benefit student learning.

The program is designed for groups of participants that consist of lecturers, researchers and students who collectively agree to sign in and work together on their collaborative (new) projects. Groups can consist of 2 persons or more, but ideally have researchers and lecturers in them.

Research and education are all about knowledge. In 2020, Hanze UAS will be a professional knowledge institution with one primary process: the acquisition of knowledge. The plan to achieve this, was devised in a bottom-up way, through conversations with about 150 teachers, PhD-students, professors, deans and the executive board. Execution of the plan will also be done the bottom-up way: we want to create room for our teachers/researchers, so that they will be in control of their own research. At the moment, the Hanze UAS is a strictly top-down managed university – this has some interesting consequences.

The strategic program 'Research in Education' (dutch: Onderzoek in Onderwijs, OiO) is part of the strategic mission of Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (2015-2020). The direction of the program OiO is given by two formal university aims:

  • All educational programs are expected to (re)consider their perspective on the position of research in the related vocational field, and hence in their educational program (before the end of 2017)
  • All educational programs are expected to re-design their curricula accordingly (before the end of 2020).

The strategic program Research in Education supports educational teams, as well as faculties in fulfilling this assignment. For more information please check www.onderzoekinonderwijs.nl.
