Working with tools

To shape the vision on teaching and learning within the University, both online and offline tools are available. You can find several of these tools on this page.


Icons vision on teaching and learning

An icon line has been developed for the vision on teaching and learning @ Leiden University. These can be used within the university to visualise communication about the ambitions.

Amended headings ambitions

In September 2018, the Dutch and English headings of the ambitions were amended to bring them more fully into line with what is meant by them. For example, there is a difference between 'onderzoekend leren' and 'research-based learning'. The terms 'verwevenheid onderzoek en onderwijs' and 'integration of research and teaching' are better suited to this purpose. The icon for skills was also amended. The series of books was most suitable for 'knowledge'. Therefore the picture has become a toolbox. All headings have been amended on this website and the correct icons can be downloaded.
