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.

 What the program offers

  • Didactic training by didactic experts in English
  • Mentoring by an experienced university teacher
  • The Forum “ProTeaching” to exchange ideas and contribute to reflection on one’s own teaching through mutual collegial consultation
  • The certificate of completion certifies the participation in the two-level program
  • For international Phd students of the University of Potsdam: financial support to compensate for additional work load which might arise with program participation
