Humboldt-Universität's Day of Teaching and Learning

Each summer semester, Humboldt-Universität takes a "Dies Academicus" to reflect upon particular aspects of teaching and learning and to celebrate outstanding achievements in teaching. This year, on Thursday 27 June 2024, we will focus on the topics of internationalisation and multi-perspectivity.

In focussing on multi-perspectivity and internationalisation in teaching and learning, we are addressing a cross-cutting task from Humboldt-Universität's newly agreed mission statement on teaching and learning. The guiding question for HU's day of Teaching is, therefore, what staff, students, individual departments, the university's faculties and administration can do to embrace multi-perspectivity and to identify how and where our curricula can benefit from internationalisation.

As "international teaching and learning" is also the focus of Humboldt-Universität's award for excellence in teaching, we also look forward to some inspiring examples of good practice at HU.
