Foundations of University Teaching Excellence

CERPEK's vision for pedagogical competence is that: all teachers at Masaryk University teach with high quality and great impact on student achievement, and that their teaching has a positive impact on the well-being of learners and their own. This vision is realised through a comprehensive educational program, the Foundations of University Teaching Excellence. We believe that nurturing dedicated teachers builds their confidence and provides traditional and innovative tools to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching. The program also helps build a learning community and brings the issue of teaching development to the attention of individual teachers, departments, and the university as a whole. It provides learners with the opportunity to learn under the guidance of trained tutors, which can contribute to their perceptions of teaching, which in turn can reduce dropouts.
