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

7 February 2023

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) invites applications for grants to fund the preparation of Tertiary Education (university-level) geoscience teaching materials. There will be a total of 10 awards funded in 2023. These higher education teaching grants, of up to 750€ each, can be on any geoscience topic, including laboratory or fieldwork.

In 2023, preference will be given to topics and subject areas not covered in previous awards. Applications that are cross-disciplinary and/or multinational, or 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 EGU website and also 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 written in English. Teaching packages will ideally have been either trialed or co-authored with university students prior to submission. Applications are welcome from any country.

A CV of the authors and a general presentation of the proposed resources are expected for the application for this call.

The application deadline is 1 May 2023. Successful applicants will be informed by 19 May and the final teaching packages must be submitted by 29 September 2023. All proposals will be reviewed based on the above criteria as well as the scientific and pedagogic merit, timeliness, relevance, and feasibility of the project. All decisions are final.
