Call for Applications: PhD Supervision Excellence Training for Academic Staff

What is ‘teaching excellence’ in Higher Education? Which different teaching excellence training, promotion and reward schemes exist across Europe? How can a common European teaching scheme look like? The e-NOTE project led by Leiden University with the participation of Charles University and other partners across Europe seeks to answer these questions. Deadline: 24 May.

Excellence in PhD Supervision

The European Network on Teaching Excellence invites applications from interested Academic Staff to participate in a five-day intensive training on PhD supervision excellence. The Training is organised under the auspices of the Erasmus + Strategic Partnership project E-NOTE and will be hosted by the Charles University in cooperation with the Universities of Leiden, Coimbra and Copenhagen. The event will take place online between 20 June 2022 and 24 June 2022 and participants have the flexibility of choosing from the various programme panels.
