Humboldt Award for Excellence in Teaching

Outstanding teaching is an important touchstone for the quality of our university, because according to Humboldt’s ideal, research can only be successful when it is closely associated with learning. Every year, the ‘Humboldt Award for Excellence in Teaching’ rewards successful and innovative teachers and teaching concepts implemented in the course of regular teaching at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU). By focusing on different aspects of teaching each year, the award aims to stimulate a broad discussion. The HU endows a prize of 10,000 € to be used for teaching purposes as the award winner sees fit.
