Hosting of the ITP Programme rotates among ISBM member schools. For the academic year 2023- 2024 edition we are delighted to welcome participants to Vlerick Business School, Module 1 in Brussels, Belgium, Module 2 online, Module 3 in Ghent, Belgium.

Since 1953, Vlerick Business School has been a force for positive change in society – through teaching, research and the impact his students have in the world.

During the ITP programme you will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience of several experts from across the world.

The ITP experience is designed to help you succeed in your academic career. As we all know, there are complex, often competing and sometimes even contradictory criteria for “success” around the roles and importance of teaching, of research and scholarship and, increasingly, around administrative duties.

Previous participants have found the programme hugely beneficial, allowing them to take their teaching to the next level  whether junior faculty building their confidence and network, or more seasoned faculty who have recently won tenure or are being promoted and looking to invest more time in their teaching.

Our goal is for you to find your best self as a teacher’  giving you the skills to make an even stronger impact.


Module 1: 7 – 12 January 2024 – Brussels, Belgium

Module 2: 3 days online in April  2024

Module 3: 23 – 27 June 2024 – Ghent, Belgium
