Focus on Teaching

Convention for Academics and Teaching

Since 2012, the vice president for education at TU Berlin has hosted regular conventions to provide a forum outside of everyday life at the University for the strategic development of academics and teaching. Members of all status groups gather to share their experiences and to discuss innovative ideas and general issues in a uniquely free atmosphere. The event also creates a space to reflect on problems and barriers to effective teaching and work together to find the best solutions.

The conventions, which are held in the town of Ziethen, produced the Ziethen Manifesto aimed at achieving a “shift from teaching to learning“ and also laid the cornerstones for the Mission Statement for Teaching.
