Table of contents

Welcome to our Winter Course. We are proud to offer you a programme on innovation in health professions education from which you will gain everything you are hoping for. The Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences has a long record in Problem-Based Learning (PBL). This model has been applied since 1974. All six Faculties of Maastricht University are now using PBL, much to their satisfaction and to the satisfaction of their students. Maastricht is invariably rated at the top position in university rankings on education. In addition to its broad experience with PBL, Maastricht has always been eager to further develop the educational approach. Many experiments, curriculum changes and quite some research have contributed to the expertise of the people in our university. Another Maastricht tradition is to share our expertise with interested other parties. We think it is important for education to develop as broadly as possible and we hope that this course will make a valuable contribution to that.
Over the last few years we have noticed that many educators throughout the world are interested in follow-up courses in special areas, particularly after taking their first steps in curriculum renewal. That is why we have decided to offer an introductory week of workshops on PBL, which will be followed by a modular week covering a range of special and more in-depth courses. We hope this programme will meet your expectations and we also hope that you will let us know whether it does and what we can do to make it better still. For those of you who are interested in further education, I refer to special Advanced Courses with a full week devoted to a single topic, which will be held in November of this year. I also refer to our Master Programme in Health Professions Education (MHPE) and to our PhD programme. If you are interested in further details, please visit our website
The Winter Course is not only about education, it is also about meeting other people. There are not many opportunities in life to collaboratively work for a number of days with such a wide mix of professionals and cultures. We hope that our programme will help you to make the most of this experience. We have done our best to facilitate this unique encounter by presenting a programme that offers a mixture of work and leisure, including a number of social activities. Finally, we invite you to enjoy the city of Maastricht and its region. We think it is one of the prettiest parts of the Netherlands and we are sure that you will find in it a stimulating context for what you have come here for: to learn and to enjoy.
