PerLe fund for short formats

Call for proposals, extended submission deadline until 20 January 2020

With this one-off fund from the Projekt erfolgreiches Lehren und Lernen (project for successful teaching and learning) as part of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research’s (BMBF) Quality Pact for Teaching, projects and short formats at Kiel University are supported that serve (inter)disciplinary discussion, give students insights into different disciplines close to praxis as well as enable students to further develop their competencies.

Short formats in this case means events like student conferences, spring/summer schools, special theme days, symposia etc. From occupational orientation for the students over interactive knowledge acquisition up to the creation of occupational networks different goals of these short formats are possible. Projects of various scope can be applied with.

With the fund for short formats, a sum of 40,000 Euro will be provided for this purpose in summer term 2020.

With this announcement, we invite lecturers and students to submit applications for short formats with one of these focuses:

  • Research-based teaching, which does not just provide students with deeper insights into methodology and research processes on the basis of research findings, but also promotes and sensitizes them for their first own research;
  • Integration of digitalisation into teaching, which enables individual, digital learning scenari-os or students to critically deal with digitalization in their own disciplines and/or across their barriers;
  • Student-based or student-instructed teaching, which places an emphasis on the competencies of students with teaching tasks;
  • Study competencies, which are considered and facilitated subject-specially or interdisciplinary in regards to a heterogeneous student body and individual learning and teaching requirements;
  • (Occupational) practice and project-related teaching, which integrates social challenges and sustainable development into overlaying questions for the short format or enables networking with society;
  • Internationalization and diversity in teaching, which specifically integrates aspects of internationalization into lecture concepts and/or takes into account the multidimensional diversity of students.



    This project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under grant number 01PL17068. The responsibility for the content of this publication lies with the authors.
