You're invited: Onderwijsparade 2019 Diversity & Inclusion

On Thursday 7 March 2019 the Onderwijsparade will be taking place, Utrecht University's annual Education Day. This year’s theme is Diversity & Inclusion. Register now to attend the event, and submit a proposal if you wish to contribute. 

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are currently two of Utrecht University’s top priorities. The themes can be encountered everywhere in our everyday practice. How does it affect your work place? What role does it play in your education? Do we consider diversity to be something good? And what do we understand the concepts ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ to mean? 

The Onderwijsparade is an annual event intended to encourage dialogue on education at our university, involving lecturers, students, and staff. You can expect such things as a stimulating keynote address, workshops, pitches and an information market. At the end of the afternoon, the winners of the Teacher Awards will be announced. The programme will be mainly in English, although some elements will be in Dutch. 

Register to attend

Register now and be sure to save the date of Thursday 7 March 2019 in your calendar. The Onderwijsparade will be held at Utrecht University Hall (Academiegebouw), starting at 12 noon with a walk-in lunch and ending at 5.15 pm with a closing drinks reception.

Call for contributions

Discussions on diversity and inclusion will be the central focus of the Onderwijsparade. We invite lecturers, students, and staff to contribute their expertise to the programme, by sharing good practices, giving a pitch, organising a train-the-trainer-session or a panel, or providing some other form of presentation.

Please submit your proposal before Friday 14 December 2018. You can find more information on the website.
