Teaching is our passion. Which is precisely why we are committed to supporting and networking teachers, as well as enhancing teaching processes and making these more visible. 

Would you like a sparring partner as you develop and refine your teaching skills? Do you need assistance as you create teaching media? Are you looking for inspiration and further training opportunities on the topic of teaching? Then the Teaching Support Centre is at your service!

We offer professional advice to support you in the further development of your teaching skills and work with you to find individual solutions:

  •  if you want to try something new
  • to help you answer any questions about digital or hybrid teaching
  • as you search for a suitable examination type
    for your course concept
  • if you know what you want to change about a course, just not precisely how
  • during the development of a new study programme
  • when applying for the Teaching Innovation Fund or another teaching project
  • if you’re interested in teaching observation and would like to receive feedback on your teaching and specific ideas for further development

 And for all other concerns relating to teaching and learning - whether in-person, digital or hybrid. Please feel free to get in touch!
