Teaching Networks

Professor Moshe Rosman receives an honorary doctorate from Wroclaw University, November 2016 (Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett)

Institutions can apply for funds to develop innovative teaching networks designed to enable students to benefit from the expertise of specialists throughout Europe. These networks will facilitate student mobility, enabling students to gain course credits toward their Jewish Studies degrees through participation in exchanges and summer schools beyond their home institution, as well as via distance learning. These networks should not be about one-off workshops or seminars, but rather about establishing lasting opportunities for students and connecting existing degree programmes.

Participating institutions should already have the necessary local infrastructure in place and the grant should go towards creating the connections between them. In order to benefit the field, these networks should be flexible—new partners should be able to easily join if they bring something beneficial to the table.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to send their referees the correct reference form (available for download under the referees section of their online application form or here) and to ensure that references are submitted by the referee deadline.
