Teaching Sabbatical

STINT’s Teaching Sabbatical programme gives researchers and lecturers, who are passionate about education, international experiences relevant to their teaching role.

STINT cooperates with universities and colleges in USA, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. As a participant you will reside at the foreign higher education institution during the autumn term (August–December). The intention is for you to teach, either by giving a course on your own or co-teach with a colleague at the host institution.

Your task is to gain an understanding of learning and teaching policies and how these institutions implement and develop learning and teaching processes, as well as address educational quality standards.

You cannot apply directly to STINT, fellows are nominated by Umeå University. The International Office announces the programme in August every year.
