Prize for Internationalisation in Teaching and Learning

Denna sida på svenska

The prize is awarded to the teacher/teaching team that has made a significant contribution to raising the level of internationalisation in higher education over the past three years. This may be achieved, for example, through the development of virtual international course components, through a new teaching experience in the international classroom, or through initiatives that encourage student and teacher mobility or internationalisation of the curriculum.

The prize of SEK 105 000 will be awarded annually for five years.

Sweden’s medical faculties have set up a joint prize, starting in 2017, for the internationalisation of first and second-cycle education in order to encourage their teachers and teaching teams to actively raise the level of internationalisation in higher education by bringing an international dimension to their teaching and by improving the students’ global perspective.
