TUM extends its hearty con­gratulations to the prize re­cipients: A total of 30 projects aiming to advance inno­vation in academic teaching have been se­lected for this year's sponsor­ship by the TUM Teaching Endow­ment Fund!

Established in re­cognition of projects that are forging new inroads in higher edu­cation, and backed by auxiliary funding from the TUM Board of Manage­ment on top of a €300,000 grant from the Quality Pact for Teaching (in con­junction with the TUM: Agenda Lehre project), the TUM Teaching Endow­ment Fund launched its first annual call for appli­cations earlier this year.

As evidenced by the 69 sub­missions re­ceived, this inaugural com­petition met with keen interest. Chaired by the Senior Vice Presi­dent for Aca­demic and Stu­dent Affairs, the 13-member award jury was faced with the challenge of sin­gling out appli­cations showing parti­cular promise in terms of crea­tive new teaching approaches and novel course formats. As part of the two-step selection process, all sub­missions under­went initial screening by a peer review panel.

Based on the follo­wing criteria, all quali­fying en­tries were re­viewed and eva­luated:

  • Added value com­pared to existing course offe­rings, as shown by the intro­duction of inno­vative teaching concepts, or the ad­vancement of existing edu­cational approaches
  • In­corporation of concepts, structures, didactic materials, or ex­periential methods that can be utilized on a long-term basis 
  • Transfer­ability to other academic con­texts or sub­ject areas
  • Con­sideration for gender and diversity aspects
  • Attention to key success factors in effec­tive in­struction
  • References to current research
  • Effi­ciency, i.e., a favor­able cost-benefit ratio
  • Feasibility of imple­mentation
