Education Day - Opportunity to exchange ideas on further education and studies

Different events of the Faculties invite students and lecturers to discuss the development of academic teaching and studies.

The University of Bremen uses Education Day to exchange views about the further development of academic teaching and studies with all interested students and teachers. This year it takes place on 22nd November and the main focus is on the concept of “research-based learning”. Various events take place throughout the day within the Faculties. For example, the Faculty of Physics / Electrical Engineering is presenting its research results and a selection of theses. The Faculty of Economics is organizing a workshop on the topic of practice-related learning, while the Faculty of Social Sciences is holding a conference on the internationalization of studies. More events can be found in the program on our website (in German only).

Main events in the afternoon

As a main event, the study workshop invites you to a “World Café” in the GW2, B3009 from 14:00 to 16:00 on the topic “Research-based Teaching and Learning – Everyone stands to gain”, at which the individual phases of research-based learning are presented and discussed.

Starting at 16:15, the Center for Multimedia in Teaching (ZMML) is opening its “showroom” for University instructors. In the GW2, B3010, they will be giving practical demonstrations of their offers. At four different booths, you can inform yourself in a relaxed atmosphere about the manifold possibilities of digitally supporting your teaching in the areas of teaching-learning support, e-assessment and media services. There will also be a presentation of current projects and developments in ZMML.
