Bayreuth University Prize for digitally supported teaching
This specific teaching award is designed to strengthen the promotion of teaching-learning processes with digital resources at UBT as desired by the students. The award honors teachers who are particularly committed to digitized teaching-learning processes and thus create new or expanded learning opportunities for students on a didactically sound basis. The foundation for the selection of applicants is based on our understanding of the use of digital resources in teaching.
For the selection of an award winner we are looking for teaching-learning scenarios in which digital resources are used didactically to support student learning processes. Together with the university management, the Center of Learning and Teaching in higher Education at the University of Bayreuth has developed an overall concept for the promotion of digital resources in teaching. In this context the "Bayreuth University Prize for digitally supported teaching" is awarded.
The university prize is endowed with 1000 euros. In addition, the prizewinner receives the financing of an e-tutor for one year (20 hours per month). The prize money and the e-tutor will be used for further digital teaching-learning projects.
