EUI Summer School “Introduction to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education”


This year, the EUI Summer School “Introduction to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education” will be held from 27 to 30 June 2022.


Applications for the 2022 edition are closed now.


Teaching skills are considered a core skill by many Higher Education institutions when hiring early career academics and are therefore an asset for pursuing an academic career. The European University Institute (EUI) offers professional teacher training in line with its distinct European and intercultural identity.

This Summer School is aimed at doctoral candidates and postdoctoral scholars in the Social Sciences and Humanities, who are looking for an introduction to teaching in Higher Education.

How this course works

The 4-day training introduces participants to the theory and practice of teaching in Higher Education. By the end of this course, participants will have gained an insight into the theoretical knowledge underpinning today’s teaching in Higher Education and also learned some practical teaching skills. Furthermore, participants will meet other early career scholars from across Europe.

The European University Institute 

The European University Institute (EUI) is a unique international centre for doctorate and post-doctorate studies and research, situated in the Tuscan hills overlooking Florence.

Since its establishment 45 years ago by the six founding members of the then European Communities, the EUI has become a leading international academic institution with a European focus. The four departments – Economics, History and Civilization, Law, and Political and Social Sciences – host scholars from more than 60 countries who study and do their research for the EUI doctorate or the one-year Master in law.

Further academic units of the EUI are the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS), a centre focusing on inter-disciplinary, comparative and policy research on the major issues affecting European societies, the Max Weber Programme for Post-doctoral Studies preparing fellows for a career in academia, and the School of Transnational Governance, established in 2017, which aims to deliver teaching and high level training on the concepts, methods and techniques of transnational governance.
