Good Teaching and Learning

University of Research-Based Learning

The teaching profile of the University of Bremen is consistently oriented towards research-based learning. Research-based learning as a didactic principle includes activating teaching methods, but also proximity to current research and research processes and their reflection.

In recent years, the University of Bremen has integrated research-based learning concepts into numerous study programs in all departments, thus relating research and teaching even more closely.

The mission statement for teaching and studies, which was amended by the Academic Senate in 2021, formulates our claim to be a "university of research-based learning": research-based learning offers all students the opportunity to develop into responsible and critically thinking personalities with strong professional competence through reflective discourse, taking into account increasing digitalization and datafication.

Designing Study Courses

The range of courses offered by the University of Bremen is constantly evolving. Existing programs change, new ones are added, and others are closed. All these processes are complex and challenging. The department for university development and capacity planning as well as teaching and studies unit address fundamental questions of course design. The QM portal contains all other important information and tips.


University Teaching

Good teaching is constantly evolving. The University of Bremen supports this with a comprehensive range of measures to promote university teaching. Target group-specific or topic-oriented methods offer diverse and interesting options for developing expertise. It is also possible to acquire a certificate in university education. In addition, there are offers of individual coaching or specialist workshops.


Teaching in Dialogue

Regular exchange and dialogue between all University members involved in teaching are an important basis for maintaining excellent and innovative teaching. Excellent teaching concepts, new requirements due to the increase in digitalization, current developments in teaching research as well as dealing with diversity are topics that occupy the whole university. Opportunities for exchanging views on these topics are presented by Resonanz (in German only), the magazine for teaching and learning, on Teaching Day or in the context of the Standing Conference for Innovation in Teaching.


International Teaching

Teaching at the University of Bremen is international: promoting foreign mobility, multilingualism and diversity competence are fundamental cross-sectional dimensions of our teaching in all subjects. Our internationally attractive and innovative study and doctoral programmes enable students to gain international and intercultural experience. Lecturers from Bremen teach abroad, while guests from all over the world enrich our teaching - we offer numerous support options.
