Concept & Selection


The nominated teacher is required to submit a concept describing the course and providing general information. A PDF form with topics and questions has been created to support teachers in this task. The following aspects are to be elaborated: description of the course and the proof of performance, competence orientation, reference to the teaching award focus, student centering, teaching and learning philosophy & general didactic concept as well as media-didactic preparation & special use of teaching and learning technologies (optional – if explained the course automatically runs for the “Digital Teaching: Excellent!”). Explanations and supporting questions can be found in the concept template.

>> The concept template will be available here shortly. <<
