PerLe fund for innovative teaching

As part of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research’s (BMBF) Quality Pact for Teaching, PerLe hereby enables Kiel University to support quality development in teaching by funding projects in which teachers are offered concrete opportunities to further develop their teaching, as well as creating an incentive to exchange (cross-)subject information about the quality of teaching and innovative teaching.

The fund for innovative teaching has provided €100,000 annually since 2012 for this purpose.

PerLe fund promotes teaching projects with the following focus areas:

  • 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 increases students' awareness and enthusiasm for science by involving them in current research work and promoting their first own research projects;
  • media-aided teaching respectively thematic implementation of digitalization, which enables mobile or international and individual learning scenarios through forms of blended learning or which deals with digitalization;
  • student-based or student-instructed teaching, which structurally and conceptually (e. g. as part of large group events) solidifies tutorial work;
  • teaching at the start of studies, which specifically considers a heterogeneous student body and individual teaching/learning requirements, or specifically promotes relevant study skills (such as writing skills);
  • (occupational) practice and project-related teaching, which integrates social challenges and sustainable development into issues or enables social networking as well as an appropriate transfer of knowledge from theory into practice;
  • internationalization and diversity in teaching, which specifically integrates aspects of internationalization into event concepts and/or takes into account the multidimensional diversity of students.


The PerLe fund for innovative teaching 2020 supports 23 projects
(funding period: October 1, 2019 - September 30, 2020).




    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.
