At the University of Borås, the Pedagogical Prize is awarded to a course teaching team, i.e. a group of instructors who together are responsible for a specific course. The course you nominate should during 2017 have placed the student’s learning at the centre using a well thought-out pedagogical approach.
“Placing the student’s learning at the centre is a noteworthy achievement. Then it is natural to use a prize to acknowledge and appreciate such courses and course teaching teams that are successful and that can serve as an inspiration for others”, says Pro-Vice-Chancellor Jörgen Tholin.

Facts about the prize
The prize winners are selected by a committee consisting of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, two representatives from the Student Union in Borås, and the Head of Department of the Department of Educational Research and Development at the University of Borås. The prize will be awarded in conjugation with the university’s professorial inauguration and doctoral awards ceremony on 4 May, 2018.
The prize consists of a travel grant of SEK 50,000 for the course teaching team that planned and conducted the course. The travel grant is for a fact-finding tour, participation in conferences, or similar activities related to pedagogy. The sum is available until the end of the following calendar year.
The winners are also expected to be key note speakers at the university’s annual educational development conference.
