For Lecturers

Contributing to TISE as a Visiting Scholar/Lecturer

The EJMD TISE promotes a holistic view of the challenges, opportunities and risks faced by societal systems during processes of transition. At the heart of the TISE program lies multi-dimensional knowledge integration based on integrating the knowledge of different scientific disciplines with the knowledge of practice.

TISE would like to invite scholars/lecturers from various scientific disciplines, as well as representatives from practice (eg. industry, NGO, policy making…) with an intrinsic interest in societal transitions, as well as interest and experience in the processes and techniques of Transdisciplinarity to teach in the TISE program.

To contribute to the TISE Program as an invited scholar, you should

  • have an expertise in a field relevant to the topic of the modules of the TISE program (as a scientist and/or practitioner)
  • have experience in university teaching at graduate level in English language
