Teach­ers' Academy
The University of Helsinki Teachers’ Academy is a network of distinguished university teachers, the only of its kind in Finland. By investing in teachers, the University also invests in students and the quality of learning. Appointment to the Teachers’ Academy signifies special recognition for teaching merits and scholarship in the field of teaching.
Excellent teacher

The Teachers’ Academy’s establishment was a response to the observation and experience that the status and appreciation of teaching at universities was not equal with research. Even if one purpose of the Academy is to reward excellent teachers, it aims also to enhance the quality of teaching and learning across the whole University community. The Academy’s theoretical foundation rests on the scholarship of teaching.
