University geoscience teachers: apply for an EGU higher education teaching grant!

16 February 2021

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) invites applications for grants to fund the preparation of higher education (university-level) geoscience teaching materials. There will be a total of 8 awards funded in 2021. These higher education teaching grants, of up to 750 EUR each, can be on any geoscience topic, including laboratory or fieldwork.

In 2021, preference will be given to topics and subject areas not covered in the 2020 awards as well as for innovations related to the teaching of geoscience during the pandemic. Applications that are cross-disciplinary and/or multinational, or that include early career staff or staff-student collaborations, are especially encouraged.

The teaching packages, which must be self-contained and with all components copyright-free, will be advertised and made available online. The contents will be fully attributed to the author(s), and the expectation is that the resources should be made freely available for download from the authors’ personal or institutional website (EGU will advertise a link to this resource). The teaching packages must be accompanied by all the necessary digital or video resources in addition to data, background information, student worksheets, and a reading list.

The teaching materials must be original and can be written in any language(s) but must include a complete version in English. Applications are welcome from any country. Teaching packages will ideally have been either trialled or co-authored with university students prior to submission.

The application deadline is 1 June 2021. Successful applicants will be informed by 1 August 2021. The final teaching packages must be submitted by 1 April 2022. All proposals will be reviewed based on the above criteria and the scientific and pedagogic merit, timeliness, relevance, and feasibility of the project, and all decisions are final.
