Description & Program
Have you experienced troubles with your teaching? Do you believe that being a good researcher does not automatically make you a good teacher? Have you thought about teaching collaborations with other PhD candidates or colleagues abroad? Or are you simply interested in receiving a comprehensive overview of university teaching approaches and exchanging with experienced colleagues?
The Winter School aims to deepen junior researchers’ teaching skills in an international environment. To this end, participants will be provided with didactic training by experts in university teaching. The Winter School is open to both junior researchers with and without teaching experience. It will be a place where participants can find partners for future international teaching and learning collaborations and exchange on teaching experiences. The program is structured around three main objectives:
The training workshops will address
… basic principles of university teaching
… internationalization of teaching and learning through online cooperation and digitization
… innovative didactic methods and tools.
A particular focus will be on French-German teaching collaborations, as a concrete example of application. A roundtable will discuss the relationship between non formalized and curricular embedded transnational teaching and learning scenarios.
The number of participants is limited to 25.
Eligibility: We invite junior researchers (PhD candidates and post-doc researchers), with or without teaching experience, from all countries and all disciplines to apply, and strongly encourage PhD candi-dates with co-tutelle agreements.
Working language: English; Roundtable discussion: German and partly English
Participation is free of charge.
Accommodation in student hall in Potsdam can be provided if needed. The organizers might be able to offer travel grants upon acceptance of further funds.
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org a CV, a short letter of intent explaining your interest in interna-tional teaching and an outline of a teaching idea in connection with your PhD project (up to 600 words). Please indicate in your application if you need accommodation arrangement.
Deadline for application: 30th September 2018
