Teaching and Learning Awards

The ENLIGHT Teaching and Learning Conference at University of Ghent on November 18th and 19th, 2021 will be the setting for the first ENLIGHT Teaching and Learning Award

The ENLIGHT Teaching and Learning Award recognizes a course or programme which has implemented innovative, international pedagogical approaches and/or learning practices related to specific ENLIGHT educational aims. The criteria for this year’s award are:

  • The use of activating teaching methods related to specific ENLIGHT educational aims(for instance: challenge-based or problem-based education)
  • The use of peer learning
  • The use of feedback

Each ENLIGHT university will submit one nominee for the award. The nominees are technically ''courses'' rather than individuals so an entire teaching team of one course, for example, could be nominated. The eventual winner will be known as “ENLIGHT's Course (or programme) of the Year'', with two runners-up honored as well.
