Bayreuth University Award for Digitally Based Teaching
This specific teaching award aims to encourage digitally based teaching-learning processes at UBT, which is requested by so many students. The award honours teachers who have dedicated themselves to digital teaching and learning processes, and have thus provided students with didactically based advanced learning possibilities. The basis on which this award is assigned, is our conception of application of digital resources in teaching.
In order to assign a winner, we look out for teaching-learning scenarios in which digital resources are implemented as a means of didactically supporting students’ learning processes. In collaboration with the university administration, the ZHL has developed an overall concept to promote digital resources in teaching. In this regard, the Bayreuth University Award for Digitally Based Teaching is assigned.
The award is endowed with prize money. The prize money is intended for future digital teaching-learning projects. On top of that, the winner will receive funding for an e-tutor project, so they will not have to apply for funding separately. That money is meant to fund an e-tutor assistant over the course of five months, working 20 hours a week.
Teachers at the University of Bayreuth can find all information on applying for the award here. You can apply by sending us a description of your project until July 13th 2022. You can also invite others to apply for the award. You can find the template for applications here. Fill out the form and send it via email to email@example.com . All applications will be assessed by six members of a panel.
The award will be presented at the annual President’s-Dinner by the Vice President for Teaching and Students, Dr. Martin Huper, by Vice President for Information Technology and Entrepreneurship, Prof. Dr. Torsten Eymann, as well as the head of the Centre for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education ZHL, PD Dr. Frank Meyer.
We will be pleased to support you in your application. Feel free to reach out to our team at the Centre for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. We look forward to numerous applications and wish you best of luck for your teaching!
