About us

The Teaching Academy Groningen (TAG) is an interdisciplinary and interfaculty Community of Practice for lecturers, by lecturers. The TAG aims to contribute to the quality and innovation of education and to more recognition and rewards for teaching and for lecturers at the University of Groningen.

We do this by promoting interdisciplinary and interfaculty knowledge exchange and collaboration, both internally and externally. Internally between lecturers, researchers, educational scientists, policy staff, and administrators from the different faculties; externally between alumni, relevant partners and organizations (regional, national, and international).

The TAG has six communities of practice

Communities of Practice

To form a functional community, we have formed thematic Communities of Practice, which are grounded in the UG Educational Vision and focus on continuous, tailor-made professional development and peer support for all stakeholders. Read more about the Communities of Practice.
