- Lehre 4.0
The use of new media in the university can mean many benefits for teachers and students alike. But some questions may pop up: Which possibilities does new technology offer for the support of my teachings? What about legal issues?With our E-Learning Lunch Bag Sessions, it is our aim to offer you help, the possibility for exchange with your colleagues and maybe the inspiration for new ideas. The event will take place on a regular basis, starting upcoming winter semester 2018/2019.
