Higher Education Didactics

To ensure a high standard of teaching, TU Graz places great value on the training of its teaching staff.

To this end, TU Graz offers teaching staff the opportunity to take part in the Teaching Academy, a higher education didactic qualification programme which comprises three modules and can be tailored to specific needs and interests.

In addition to the courses offered within the framework of the Teaching Academy, TU Graz teaching staff can also take part in other training programmes offered by TU Graz and the Steirische Hochschulkonferenz.

To show appreciation for outstanding quality of teaching, TU Graz awards the Prize for Excellence in Teaching annually.
