Berninghausen Prize

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Berninghausen Prize (actually Berninghausen Prize for excellent teaching and its innovation ) is an award given in Bremen that is considered the oldest teaching prize in Germany. It has been supported by the University of Bremen and the unifreunde Bremen e. V. donates and honors "extraordinary commitment and special creativity of teachers".

The Berninghausen Prize was first awarded in 1992 by Friedo Berninghausen (1929–2013), long-time President of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce . While there were around 40 teaching prizes nationwide in 2010, the Berninghausen Prize was a novelty when it was first awarded. The award, which is awarded annually with the exception of 1998, is currently advertised in the three categories of “excellently designed seminar”, “excellent internship” and “student award” and is endowed with a total of 6,000 euros. The winners are determined by a selection committee appointed by the Academic Senate ; For the “Student Prize” category, only students and all members of the University of Bremen are entitled to submit the names of scientists working at the University as proposals, although teams are also permitted.
