UniPID Virtual Studies Call for Course Proposals 2023

October 10, 2022

Our annual call for course proposals for UniPID Virtual Studies programme is now open! We invite all interested teachers and lecturers from UniPID member universities to submit proposals by the 10th January, 2023.

Virtual Studies Call for Course Proposal 2023

The 2023 Call for Proposals aims to fund courses that contribute to and expand the themes and overall offering of UniPID's Virtual Studies programme. Course proposals for new courses as well as for updating existing UniPID courses are welcomed. Average sums assigned for the courses:

New UniPID Course

A sum of up to 6 500 € per course is available from UniPID for the creation and provision of a new online course. Any course proposal that adheres to the UniPID Virtual Studies learning objectives is eligible to apply.

However, in this call, special attention is given to proposals that address the topics of human rights, indigenous peoples, migration movements, resilience and development, and decolonialism and/or power dynamics between the Global North and the Global South, as well as courses produced in collaboration with the partners in the Global South. We also welcome proposals with a strong interdisciplinary approach. Other proposals exploring challenges of sustainable development in the Global South will be also considered.

Updating an existing UniPID course

A sum of up to 4 500 € per course is available from UniPID for updating a course that has been offered at least 3 times as a part of the UniPID Virtual Studies syllabus.

A signed contract with UniPID requires three semesters of teaching. To ensure sufficient course offering in the upcoming years, UniPID encourages courses to be offered across three consecutive academic years (instead of three consecutive semesters) and to include at least 50 UniPID students per course.

The deadline for proposals is January 10th 2023 at 23:59. The results will be announced by the end of February 2023 at the latest.
