Opportunities for academics

Introduction to Teaching and Learning (InTeL)

Join this flexible and online course module at Aarhus University and get a broad introduction to teaching and learning, which help educators improve the quality of their teaching.

Become a Team leader and hone your teaching skills

The bologna.lab at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin invites early career researchers from the partner universities of Circle U. to submit their applications to lead an innovative, interdisciplinary seminar: the so-called Circle U. Team.

Application deadline is 24 August 2022

Connect with colleagues in the academic directory

How it works:

  • The directory relies on public data from ORCID database (orcid.org).
  • If you already have an ORCID profile, just ensure it is updated and add a special tag "CircleU." in the "Keywords" field, not forgetting the dot character. Should you not have an ORCID profile, this is a great opportunity to create one.  It will make your work more visible and allow other people to easily reach you. Read more about the directory.

Mobility for academics

Academic staff may go to Circle U. universities to teach or for training. You may apply for funding for shorter training or teaching stays at European institutions. The Erasmus+ grant might cover some of your expenses. Please contact your home university for funding opportunities. For teaching, the main purpose of the stay must be to teach.

For training, these are examples of stays that might be eligible for support: 

  • Participation in staff training weeks, partner days, international weeks
  • Job shadowing: staff spending a few days with colleagues at a higher education institution to learn from them and share best practices
  • Seminars and workshops at higher education institutions
  • Lab training
  • Methods and summer courses
  • Study visits for observation

A general tip is to contact your home university early to find out if your stay is eligible for support and to plan the stay. If you are going to a partner university, contact your home university first to get relevant information.
