Fellowship for innovations in digital university teaching


The German Sport University Cologne invites applications for a fellowship in the amount of 50,000 euros for innovations in digital university teaching ("digiFellows") as of 01.03.2022.

The use of digital possibilities to enrich teaching in a way that promotes learning has been a central objective in studying and teaching for years. Already since 2016, the Fellowships for Innovations in Digital University Teaching of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia have supported the digitization of teaching, learning and testing. With the agreement on digitization, the fellowships can now be advertised and awarded in an internal university competition. Each university in NRW can advertise one fellowship per year. The fellowship can be awarded to one teacher or a group of teachers and is endowed with 50,000 euros.

Within the framework of the Fellowship at the German Sport University Cologne, innovative approaches in digital university teaching are eligible for funding. These can relate to a) the development and testing of digitally supported teaching and examination formats or b) the redesign of modules and study sections with the consistent use of digital technologies.

Funding will be made available for one year. The projects are to start on 01.03.2022. Deadline for submission of application documents is 23.01.2022.
