A network of top teachers
The University of Helsinki Teachers’ Academy is a network of distinguished university teachers, the only of its kind in Finland. While the Academy aims to promote teaching and improve its general standing in the academic community, it also encourages teachers to upgrade their qualifications and rewards them for their teaching merits. 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. MIT professor and Nobel laureate Bengt Holmström has invited to become the first honorary member of the Teachers’ Academy.
