VIADUCT Teaching award

Deadline for nominations: 15 September 2020
We are delighted to announce the third VIADUCT Teaching Award call.

To recognise outstanding teaching in the fields of EU-Turkey relations and the Future of the EU: new forms of relations between the EU-27 and neighbouring countries.

Teaching excellence comes in many forms and may include, but are not limited to:

i)  inspirational lectures, given with clarity and verve, inspiring a new generation to study the EU;

ii)  engaging and inclusive seminar teaching that allows students to question and critique texts and interpretations of EU-Turkey relations and/or new forms of relations between the EU andneighbouring countries;

iii)  simulation games or online courses.

The intention is to reach out beyond the VIADUCT Network and spread best practice in the field wherever it is taught from Vancouver to Vladivostok. Nominations and self-nominations are welcome from those teaching within and beyond the VIADUCT network. Nominations of young scholars are especially encouraged.

The Award of 1.500 Euro will be made at the VIADUCT online conference from 22 – 23 October 2020.


Heads of Department are invited to nominate outstanding teachers in the field of EU-Turkey relations broadly defined. Self-nominations are also welcome. Nominations should include the name of the individual nominated, a CV and a short statement explaining why they should be considered for this award. A link to or reference of the nominee’s work, samples of course syllabi as well as further documents such as Power Point Presentations or similar, and examples of student feedback (where applicable), should be provided by the call’s deadline.

Excellence can cover many different aspects of teaching including providing new insights, innovative methods, or simply inspiring students. University teaching whether on full-time or part-time courses or teaching summer schools or similar are eligible.
