STINT's Teaching Sabbatical programme gives researchers and lecturers, who are passionate about education, the opportunity to teach abroad during an autumn semester.
Teaching Sabbatical is a programme by STINT (The Foundation for the Internationalization of Higher Education and Research) that gives researchers and lecturers the opportunity to teach abroad. As a participant in Teaching Sabbatical, you will stay at a university abroad and teach during an autumn semester (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 ("co-teaching").

Your task is to gain a broad understanding of learning and teaching policies, and how these institutions implement and develop learning and teaching processes, as well as address educational quality standards. Great emphasis is placed on the added value of the stay abroad.
