PAC University Teaching Qualification / EVC Basis Kwalificatie Onderwijs

University Teaching Qualification (UTQ)

In order to improve the quality of university education and professional development of their teaching staff, FHML has recognised the - nationally mandatory - University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) and supports teachers in the (further) development of their teaching competences by offering a UTQ programme. Completion of the UTQ programme is mandatory for all teachers with B and C roles at FHML and is recommended for teachers with a A roles, researchers, and PhD candidates.

The UTQ can be attained in various ways, depending on the extent to which the UTQ competencies and underlying skills have already been developed and demonstrated. There are three ways to attain a UTQ, of which the UTQ programme is the most common choice:

1. Regular UTQ programme

2. PAC trajectory

3. UTQ exemption

 

1. Regular UTQ programme
 

Study load UTQ programme, teaching hours compensation, and accreditation
The complete UTQ programme has an average study load of 185 hours. These hours include attending the compulsory meetings, studying literature, applying newly acquired knowledge in practice, coaching, reflecting, and composing the UTQ portfolio.

The department receives 40 teaching hours to compensate for participation in the UTQ meetings. These hours will be granted once the UTQ certificate has been obtained. For PhDs, the UTQ programme is part of their standard training programme and, therefore, the compensation does not apply.

After full participation in the UTQ programme, medical specialists receive 30 credits for general training according to the ABAN registration. The hospital pharmacists (ZA) receive 20 credits through the ZA registration.

2. PAC trajectory (EVC)

Based on their previously acquired competences (PACs), teachers with ample theoretical and practical teaching experience may be eligible to follow a PAC trajectory and receive an exemption for the UTQ programme. Ample teaching experience is considered to be at least 5-10 years of significant teaching activities at higher education institutions.

Basic requirements of the PAC trajectory
Before you can make a request for a PAC trajectory, you must meet the following basic requirements:

- Your head of department has agreed upon your participation.

- You have successfully completed the PBL introductory course (Principles of PBL).

Enrolment
If you meet the basic requirements, you can sign up for the UTQ programme by filling out this register form: Register.  After registration, you will receive an intake form for composing a portfolio.

The PAC trajectory
You can start the PAC trajectory at any time. During the PAC trajectory, you will independently compose a portfolio with thorough reflections on the development of your core teaching competences and underlying skills, based on your experiences in educational practice. Your reflections are supported by evidence and educational literature. The PAC trajectory ends with an assessment of your portfolio during a meeting in which you have the opportunity to explain the content of your portfolio.

The duration of the PAC trajectory depends on the amount of time you want to put in composing your UTQ portfolio. As soon as you decide your portfolio is complete and ready for assessment, you can submit the portfolio via doc-prof-fhml@maastrichtuniversity.nl.

Teaching hours compensation
The department receives no teaching hours to compensate for participation in the PAC trajectory because it is assumed that, based on the educational experiences the teacher has, s/he is able to compose a UTQ portfolio with relatively limited effort.

Contact
For any inquiries or questions, please contact the UTQ coordinator (Pascal van Gerven, p.vangerven@maastrichtuniversity.nl).

 

3. UTQ exemption

If you have already completed a teacher training programme and have teaching experience that has resulted in  sufficiently developed teaching competences (i.e., the competences that are required for the UTQ), you can be exempted from the UTQ training programme.

The following training programmes may lead to UTQ exemption:

*‘Eerstegraads lerarenopleiding’ (NL)
*‘Tweedegraads lerarenopleiding’ (NL)
*Post-Graduate Certificate Education (PGCE), UK
*Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE), UM
*UTQ or equivalent certificate obtained at a Dutch university of applied sciences (training programme and portfolio must be submitted for assessment)
*Teaching minor at a higher education institution (minimum of 30 ECTS) leading to a teacher qualification, as is common in Flemish universities.

 This list is not conclusive and will be extended if it has been proven that the UTQ competences have been adequately assessed during another training programme.

University Teaching Qualification (UTQ)

In order to improve the quality of university education and professional development of their teaching staff, FHML has recognised the - nationally mandatory - University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) and supports teachers in the (further) development of their teaching competences by offering a UTQ programme. Completion of the UTQ programme is mandatory for all teachers with B and C roles at FHML and is recommended for teachers with a A roles, researchers, and PhD candidates.

The UTQ can be attained in various ways, depending on the extent to which the UTQ competencies and underlying skills have already been developed and demonstrated. There are three ways to attain a UTQ, of which the UTQ programme is the most common choice:

1. Regular UTQ programme

2. PAC trajectory

3. UTQ exemption

 

1. Regular UTQ programme
 

Study load UTQ programme, teaching hours compensation, and accreditation
The complete UTQ programme has an average study load of 185 hours. These hours include attending the compulsory meetings, studying literature, applying newly acquired knowledge in practice, coaching, reflecting, and composing the UTQ portfolio.

The department receives 40 teaching hours to compensate for participation in the UTQ meetings. These hours will be granted once the UTQ certificate has been obtained. For PhDs, the UTQ programme is part of their standard training programme and, therefore, the compensation does not apply.
