PerLe funding 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 funding for innovative teaching has provided €100,000 annually since 2012 for this purpose.

PerLe funding 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, which enables mobile or international and individual learning scenarios through forms of blended learning;
  • Student-based or student-instructed teaching, which structurally and conceptually solidifies tutorial work;
  • Teaching in the early stages of studying, 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.



    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.
