The European Network on Teaching Excellence (E-NOTE) is a project funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership framework. The project brings together university managers, teaching faculty, support staff, PhD supervisors, students and education experts to advance exchanges and best practices in relation to “teaching excellence”. The project examines “teaching excellence” at undergraduate and graduate teaching levels as well as in the context of PhD supervision. In addition, the project addresses core issues related to teaching excellence in the post-Covid19 context, including best practices in physical, online and hybrid teaching realms. E-NOTE will organize trainings and workshops, will release a wide range of reports and seeks to prepare a blueprint for a European Certificate of Teaching Excellence (ECTE)
