e-NOTE: European Network on Teaching Excellence

What is “teaching excellence” in Higher Education? Which different teaching excellence training, promotion and reward schemes exist across Europe? How can a common European teaching scheme look like?

The e-NOTE project seeks to answer these questions. The Department of Political Science cooperates with five other universities and institutes across Europe. Leiden University leads the project.

The European Network on Teaching Excellence hereby announce our next Teaching Excellence training for Academic Staff event that takes place online from 9-13 January 2023. The training is organized under the auspices of the Erasmus + Strategic Partnership project E-NOTE. Copenhagen University host the event in cooperation with the universities of Leiden, Coimbra and Charles.

Each day, a specific group is prioritized, Teachers, Developers, Managers and European Institutions and National Agencies. As a participant, you have the flexibility of choosing from the various program panels.

The focus of the training will be on how to do excellent teaching and teacher training and how to ensure a supportive and development oriented environment for excellent teaching and teacher training at a departmental, institutional as well as at a national and international level. The design of the programme takes the variations in stage of development and implementation of Teaching Excellence programmes into consideration. There will be a mix of presentations and workshops with different focus depending on the participants needs.

The event is organized to benefit university management staff, higher education learning and development professionals and teaching staff. The objective of the event is to display good case studies of excellence training, including training curricula development and allow participants to gain hands-on experience through practical workshops. Participants should bring a case of their own to share and develop during the event.


The training programme will be updated continuously as the speakers confirm their participation. The expected timeframe is 9:30-17:00 CET.
