The HFU Teaching Prize is awarded annually for outstanding teaching in HFU courses. Excellence in teaching has been awarded at HFU since 2008, formerly until 2015 as the "E-Teaching Award".
Every semester HFU students nominate current courses as possible contenders for the HFU Teaching Prize. Once lecturers have agreed to take part in the selection procedures, the courses are evaluated using various criteria. The courses which have the highest evaluations from the winter and summer semesters are then presented to a jury of external and internal experts. The jury selects the course which will be awarded the HFU Teaching Prize in the following winter semester.
