This year, I worked to obtain my University Teaching Qualification (UTQ). The UTQ is a proof of didactic competence to teach and supervise at a university. This qualification is recognized nationally: all Dutch universities require all of their lecturers to obtain this qualification. In order to obtain the UTQ, an academic staff member has to complete four modules: UTQ Develop, UTQ Teach, UTQ Assess, and UTQ Supervise.
As an assistant professor, one of my new tasks is to teach. Recently, I finished my first teaching session of a Bachelor course for second year students from Electrical Engineering. Specifically, I was tasked with teaching EE2T21 (Part B) - Data Communications Networking.
