University didactics

The »Qualitätsoffensive Lehre« (»quality teaching campaign«) project at the HWR Berlin provides all teaching staff at the university with the opportunity to participate in a didactic higher education programme and obtain individual advice.

The implementation of the higher education didactic teaching development and advice provides key stimuli to teaching staff (professors, lecturers and visiting lecturers) for getting to grips with their own teaching in a professional manner, making use of inspiration from experts and exchanging views with colleagues.

The offers are mainly in German. If you are interested in English language offers, please contact us.   

We enable personalised advice through constructive and stimulating exchanges with a “view from the outside” in various formats, whereby student perspectives can also be obtained:

Teaching Analysis Poll
A structured half-hour group interview with students, without the lecturer being present, whereby three questions are asked in order to obtain feedback regarding student learning experiences and suggestions on how to improve teaching. The results are then reported back and discussed in a neutral manner.

Teaching observation
Structured observation of a lecture with subsequent feedback and preparation of potential development fields.

Lecture-based advice
Individual exchange regarding style of teaching and suggestions on how to develop teaching.
