Teaching Fellows

Who are Teaching Fellows?

Teaching Fellows program is financed by CERGE-EI foundation and run by ISET since 2008 in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Teaching Fellows are graduates of ISET who teach modern, market-based economics to the next generation in different universities of the region. Some fellows have entered full-time academic careers; others teach part-time. As a part of the fellowship each receives supplemental income, training in teaching techniques in Prague, Czech Republic and active mentoring from senior faculty at CERGE-EI and ISET.
The ISET Teaching Fellows teach more than fifteen hundred students at different universities in the region: International School of Economics at TSU (ISET), Tbilisi State University, Ilia University, University of Georgia, Caucasus University (Georgia), International Black Sea University – IBSU (Georgia), San Diego University, Yerevan State University, French Higher Institute of Engineering in Armenia, European Regional Academy (Armenia), Khazar University and Azerbaijan University.

Training in teaching techniques in Prague, Czech Republic

Every year ISET graduates are awarded teaching fellowships to attend a course on Teaching Principles and Practices at the Economics Institute of the Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education (CERGE-EI) in Prague, Czech Republic. Together with other fellows from such countries as Russia, Romania, Ukraine and the Czech Republic the former ISET students are granted an opportunity to develop their teaching and presentation skills.

How can I become a Teaching Fellow?

Every year in May, ISET invites graduates and second year students to apply for Teaching Fellowships, for the fall and spring semesters of the upcoming academic year. The Teaching Fellows (grant winners) will be expected to conduct seminars and teach economics courses at Georgian, Armenian and Azerbaijani universities.
