Arqus Teaching Excellence Award for enabling research-based teaching
The Arqus Alliance awards teaching which is particularly successful in enabling students from different backgrounds and of different levels to learn through research and to take an active part in research.
The teaching projects should tackle relevant research questions and contribute to current societal issues – theoretically or practically. They should also foster gender-sensitive education and eliminate gender stereotypes.
A strong connection between research and teaching can be targeted in many different ways. Courses that promote research-based teaching and learning and actively involve students as junior researchers are particularly considered “Arqus Teaching Excellence Projects”. The Arqus Alliance is also very interested in how learning processes have been reflected during the course and how students’ feedback has been integrated and used for the improvement of learning experiences and teaching methods.
We value especially teachers who are particularly committed to the students and highly motivated to support students in achieving their learning goals. Well-used methods of team-teaching and strategies for integrating an interdisciplinary approach are also taken into account for the teaching award.
