Call for Nominations 2023

Humboldt-Universität’s award for excellence in teaching is an annual, thematically focused award.

The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin Award for Excellence in Teaching will be presented in the academic year 2023 on the topic of "International Teaching and Learning".

This year, teachers and teaching/learning projects are being sought who have succeeded in an outstanding way in introducing international and intercultural dimensions into teaching.



Nominations are open to courses that contribute to the internationalisation of teaching and learning at Humboldt-Universität. This can be achieved, for example, through teaching formats and concepts that:


  • bring together international learning groups and teams
  • organise teaching together with universities abroad
  • are multilingual,
  • link subject knowledge and language skills in an innovative way,
  • give students insights into international research projects
  • orientate teaching content globally and enable a change of perspective,
  • accompany the mobility of students,
  • support internationalisation@home (digitally),
  • make international mobility and intercultural exchange more sustainable,
  • include diversity, international experience and (language) knowledge of the students,
  • enable students to acquire intercultural competences,



All members of Humboldt-Universität can nominate other members of the university via our online nominations form. Only teaching staff with a link to an academic unit at Humboldt-Universität are eligible to receive the award. This includes professors, teaching and research staff, lecturers, lectors and student tutors. You can nominate both individual members of staff or teaching teams, as well as entire departments or academic units. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
