Award for Excellence in Teaching

In order to advance commitment to teaching and student learning, the University of Oldenburg has established the Award for Excellence in Teaching.

The award honors instructors for their outstanding and innovative teaching concepts and is presented by the Vice President for Instruction and International Affairs. Winners are chosen by the university-wide jury consisting of faculty and student representatives from all schools as well as one member of University Society Oldenburg e.V. (UGO).

Only students can nominate candidates for the award.

The only exception is the category Class Evaluation. Faculty members and instructors can nominate themselves by submitting their course evaluation.


In academic year 2019/20, the Award for Excellence in Teaching was given in three categories:

  • Best Class
  • Research Based Learning
  • Digital Media in Teaching and Learning

Courses taught in Winter Semester 2019/2020 and Summer Semester 2020 could be nominated. For detailed information about the categories, please refer to this document.

There was an additional award for Best Class Evaluation. Faculty members could apply for this award themselves by submitting their course evaluation.

For more information, please refer to our German page. There you will also find this as well as previous years' winners.
