STINT’s programme Teaching Sabbatical aims to develop both individuals and institutions. By giving Swedish researchers and university lecturers, who are passionate about education, international experiences relevant to their teaching role rather than their research one, STINT wants to contribute to educational renewal and the creation of new networks. Great emphasis is put on the added value of the stay abroad, which is why STINT encourages candidates to search for new international experiences.
STINT collaborates with selected universities and colleges based in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the US. They represent a diversity of institutions committed to high quality education in their respective regions around the world. Participating lecturers will reside at the foreign institution of higher education for the autumn semester (August to December). The intention is for them to teach, either by giving a course themselves or in partnership with a colleague at the host institution.
There is great emphasis on involving the university leadership and how universities will use returning lecturers’ experiences in various ways towards positive dissemination impacts. Therefore nomination from the Swedish university is required; lecturers cannot themselves apply directly to the programme. Nominees must hold a doctorate degree, be employed by and well established at a Swedish university. The lecturer must take a full leave of absence during the stay abroad. The tax-free scholarship amount will be determined by STINT, depending on the location of the partner university, any accompanying family members and the lecturer’s salary.
