University of Mannheim Teaching Award

Every year, on the occasion of the Universitätstag, the University of Mannheim honors two teachers who have distinguished themselves through excellent student evaluations, the practice-oriented teaching of specialist content, as well as great personal commitment and didactic diversity in recognition of their outstanding achievements in academic teaching. The winners of the Teaching Award (professors and mid-level faculty members holding a doctoral degree) are teachers who succeed in motivating students to a special degree and thus contribute to their excellent academic performance.
