UZH increasingly provides incentives for teaching staff to develop and test new ideas and forms of teaching. The Teaching Fund, which has been in place since 2016, was replaced by the broader UZH Teaching Fund (ULF) as of August 1, 2022. The funding amount has been almost tripled to CHF 2 million per year starting in 2023.
The new UZH Teaching Fund (ULF) comprises five funding lines that serve as key measures for the implementation of the “Future of Education at UZH” initiative launched by the Vice President of Education and Student Affairs. These five funding lines are intended to support the widespread implementation of the UZH curriculum. A presentation introducing the initiative, the new Educational Development office, and the UZH Teaching Fund (ULF) as a part of the Teaching Inspiration Week 2022 can be viewed here:
