Goal of the program
For foreign researchers it is frequently difficult to gather teaching experience because of language barriers or uncertainty about the customary teaching culture. Within “International Teaching Professionals” participants experience a close connection between teaching and research in which they develop their own field of research didactically and communicate it to the students. This will introduce them to an international career as university teachers. The certified teaching competence offers an important long-term advantage in the future academic career. Along with the acquisition of university didactic competence, the program additionally aims to improve networking of international researchers.
