Standing Conference for Innovation in Teaching

With the establishment of a Standing Conference for Innovation in Teaching, the Vice-President Academics promotes discourse on good and innovative concepts in teaching and thus makes an important contribution to the promotion of excellent teaching at the University of Bremen.

The conference offers participants the opportunity to discuss successful concepts, plausible quality criteria and achievable development perspectives for good teaching. Such a collegial exchange takes place once or twice a year, each time with a changed thematic focus. Interested teachers can apply to participate with a letter of motivation.

The project is supported by LehrehochN.
