The EDview Project

The EDview Project investigated the current state of education at Maastricht University and charts new paths for the future. The project was jointly implemented by UM’s institute for innovation in education, EDLAB, and the Department of Educational Development and Research (part of the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, FHML).

EDview promotes the ongoing development and innovation of education at Maastricht University. In 2017, it started off by researching the current state of education at the university and collecting expectations about its future. Following this initial research phase, the project has moved into its implementation phase, working on the basis of the research findings.

EDview’s Research Phase resulted in a Position Paper that presents a shared view on the future of education at UM, focusing in particular on the role of Problem-Based Learning (PBL). The paper includes an Executive Summary.

In addition, EDview put together a comprehensive overview of Do’s, Don’ts and Don’t Knows that follow from the Position Paper, ranging from the areas of teaching and designing education to marketing and communication, leadership and human resources.

Details on EDview’s research approach and methods, acknowledgements, and an overview of the EDview Project Team of this phase are included in EDview’s Appendices.

The results of EDview’s Research Phase were presented at an EDview Symposium on October 23, 2018. The symposium offered a variety of interactive sessions, in which over 200 participants (staff and students) provided valuable input for the next step of the project: a practical follow-up on the EDview results.
