2nd Call for Joint Online Courses in 2022/23 Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) – The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI)

23 November, 2021

With the goal of advancing German-Israeli academic cooperation in research and teaching, Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI), are pleased to announce the 2nd Call for Joint Online Courses.  Launched in 2021 through the German-Israeli Virtual Campus (GIVCA) initiative, the project aims to foster the development of joint digital and blended learning, teaching and mobility formats for the benefit of students at both institutions. 
 The new reality imposed by Covid-19 has significantly increased the relevance and the need for more joint international online courses. FUB and HUJI are thus seeking pairs of academic staff – 1 HUJI and 1 FUB as “teaching tandems” – who will design and deliver joint online/digital courses that can be integrated into the curricula as regular offerings. 
 
Fields: Open to all academic fields, and activities may focus on a single discipline or be interdisciplinary in nature.   
 
Funding: Up to 6.000 Euro per joint course. Eligible expenses include: costs for the production of digital content, personnel (on external contract basis), or consumables. Travel expenses may also be part of a proposal, though should not comprise the majority of the project costs. There are service units for digital teaching and learning at both FUB (CeDiS) and HUJI (Unit for Teaching and Learning) that should be consulted as soon as call participation is planned (see contact details below). These service units may act as subcontractors. 
 
Potential Course Frameworks:  
 • Intensive short-term joint courses  • Long-term joint courses (1-2 semesters) • Joint online lecture series  • Other formats, especially blended formats combining on- and off-line components 

Further Information: For information regarding the application process please contact the above-mentioned staff. For consultation regarding concept development and implementation, please contact the respective service units for e-learning at both universities:
