EAAE Pedagogy Awards

Innovation & Excellence in Teaching 2024

The purpose of the Association is to advance the quality of architectural education and also to promote the quality of architecture in Europe. The Association provides a forum for generating information on aspects of architectural education and architectural research.

The mission of the Association is to build a network of European schools of architecture, fostering discussions, exchanges and a common policy in Europe to advance the quality of architectural education. The EAAE promotes the interests of member schools as institutions and academic environments.

The Architects Council of Europe is a non-profit organisation founded to promote architecture in Europe, advance the quality of the built environment, support sustainable development and ensure the highest standards of qualification for architects.

The EAAE together with ACE invite applications for the Pedagogy Awards 2024. The Awards are open to any staff who are engaged in teaching on an architecture programme in Europe and whose school has membership of EAAE or associated membership of the EAAE in the current academic year. The aim of the awards is to promote excellence and innovation in teaching and to share good practice amongst teaching staff.

€3000 will be awarded to the successful candidate or team to provide seed funding for their research and development of architectural teaching. The proposal should highlight an innovative approach to teaching. More than one award may be given.

In preparing your application, consideration should be given to the following theme: Alignment with the pedagogical aims of the EAAE

Your application should demonstrate how your pedagogical proposal addresses a connection with this theme. Such as how you have organised the studio learning, innovative practice in your teaching etc. The official language of the award is English. Submissions can describe a new pedagogical proposal or demonstrate the development and expansion of an approach already piloted.

The Award can be attained by an academic staff individual or an academic staff team and the monetary reward will be used to provide seed funding for the proposal’s implementation. There is a maximum of three submissions per school.
