Das Zentrum für Wissenschaftsdidaktik (ZfW) bietet ukrainischen Hochschuldidaktiker/innen die Möglichkeit, bis zu sechs Monate für ein Stipendium an die Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) zu kommen.

The Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s largest universities. The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) (Zentrum für Wissenschaftsdidaktik = ZfW) is RUB’s central place for all questions about teaching and learning in higher education. Their work focuses on e-learning, didactics of higher education and academic writing. It provides all faculties with advice on questions such as: How can groups of students be activated? How can exams be designed in a meaningful way? How can students be motivated to write and read? In addition, the ZfW implements large projects e.g. in the field of learning analytics and artificial intelligence as well as in the field of inclusion. It also plays a central role in shaping teaching in the Europe-wide university network UNIC.

Fellowship for Ukrainian Refugees

In order to express their solidarity with the people in Ukraine, ZfW provides funding for Ukrainian refugees for a guest stay at their centre.

What is Offered

  • The ZfW provides funding ranging from € 1200 up to € 2200 per month, depending on your personal preconditions, for a duration of six months.
  • You will be integrated into the team at the RUB and develop your own project within their field of work.

Your Tasks

As part of the fellowship, you have the opportunity to get to know the work of a German CTL. You can try out the development and implementation of your own ideas in the German university system:

  • You may develop and implement workshops for university-teachers in English.
  • You may deal with digitalisation in university education.
  • You may contribute to shape teacher training offers in the fields of diversity, inclusion and sustainability.
  • You may advise English-speaking students on topics related to academic writing.
  • You may contribute to European international cooperation within the European University UNIC.
  • You may support the preparation of conferences or the public relations work of our centre.

The ZfW also gives you the opportunity to work on a proposal for a possible follow-up project, although this would need to be funded by a different institution and approval may not occur until after your stay at the ZfW.

Your Profile

  • You have Ukrainian citizenship and you are directly afflicted by the war in Ukraine.
  • You are a graduate student or a practitioner in didactics of Higher Education, eLearning,
    academic writing, educational sciences or a related discipline.
  • You communicate fluently in English (or German).
