CLI, in close collaboration with research and training institute Risbo, offers various courses for teachers of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). After completing the course, the lecturer is awarded a certificate and registration in the EUR HR system. The structural qualification programs are: the University Teaching Qualification (UTQ), the Senior University Teaching Qualification (SUTQ) and the Leadership in Education Course (LEC). A Basic Examination Qualification (BEQ) can also be obtained by following a few specific Microlabs. In addition, since 2021, teachers can also obtain the Senior Examination Qualification (SEQ).

In 2018 the University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) was adapted to make it more in line with the new educational vision. This new BUTQ is blended and more activating.

The participation of lecturers in the UTQ, which is mandatory for all EUR lecturers, is financed by the faculties themselves.


In the Senior University Teaching Qualification (SUTQ), lecturers learn how to plan their courses afresh. Special attention is given to activating students and the use of digital teaching resources.



In the Leadership in Education Course (LEC), at multidisciplinary level is key. In this course, lecturers learn to shape innovation in terms of content and process.

After a successful pilot, EUR teachers have the option of obtaining a Basic Examination Qualification. The EUR BEQ trajectory is a compact individual portfolio trajectory that can be tailor-made from the Microlabs on assessment. The BEQ trajectory covers the entire assessment cycle at course level from design to evaluation.

BEQ alumnus Dr Maarten Knapen (Erasmus MC) wrote about the trajectory: “I've been searching for good training on these subjects for years and I now feel much more competent to play my role as theme-coordinator and examiner and to support my fellow lecturers properly!"

Are you facing the challenge of updating or adapting your course assessments? Do you want to be able to make decisions about the results of your test more confidently? Or do you want to be able to advise colleagues on assessment quality, for example as a member of an assessment committee? Are you looking for an efficient way to refresh, expand or demonstrate your competence in assessment? Then the BEQ trajectory is interesting for you!

Have a look at our interactive infographic for more information about the EUR BEQ trajectory. If you would like to sign up for the BEQ or if you have any questions about this trajectory, please contact training@risbo.eur.nl.

The SEQ (Senior Examination Qualification) is meant to strengthen the professional development of lecturer members of the EUR exam committees and/or programme coordinators.

Testimonial of a SEQ participant:
In March 2020, I was part of the first group to start the Senior Examination Qualification (SEQ) course with 7 of my colleagues at ESSB. A very educational and valuable process! What made it so educational and valuable? To begin with, this course really helps you to make time to work on the assessment quality of the program. As program director of the bachelor Public Administration, I have to recalibrate the assessment plan of our program. In the SEQ, we worked with our own assessment plans so that we could immediately process the insights we obtained. We also analyzed and discussed the assessment policies and assessment plans of other study programs. This benchmark provided useful insights into our own assessment policy and assessment plan. Finally, the composition of participants during this course was very valuable. The group consisted of people from program management, the examination board and educational policy advisors of our own faculty. This allowed us to discuss insights from different angles and we also gained more insight into each other's tasks and responsibilities. During the course we were constantly challenged and supported by the people from Risbo to get the most out of the trajectory, which resulted in a good basis for the assessment quality of our program. In short, a course that I can wholeheartedly recommend!

The faculties bear the costs of the basic university teaching courses (everything related to the UTQ). In this way, the faculties ensure that all lecturers are qualified to provide education. However, all follow-up training courses will be funded by the CLI up to and including 2024, because they contribute to educational innovation and increase the over all quality of education. This concerns the SUTQ, SEQ, LEC, MicroLabs and Webinars. Participation in these follow-up courses is therefore free of charge for teachers. The faculties are expected to give lecturers the opportunity (=time) to participate in the training courses. Any additional costs will also be borne by the faculties.
