Technology and Innovation Management


Teaching & Learning Game Development

The TIM team collaborates with the serious game experts from House of Knowledge, Norway, in pushing the boundaries of teaching & learning in project management for industrial engineering and management students. We want to create a novel learning experience through a project management board game, which is fun and engaging through a set of innovative game mechanisms. This is a project financed by the “Quality and Innovation Initiative (QIO) of the Berlin Senate. Want more info? Contact Helena Wittrich at: h.wittrich(at)

New project management excercise under development at TIM

At the TIM research group we are working on a new teaching and learning concept for module "Fundamentals of Project Management". Students will learn to address specific project management challenges in a simulated project environment. Learning is facilitated through serious game elements, which also will include a new procedure for forming student groups. In an advanced version of the project management game, students will play in an online-format too. If you have questions to the project, please contact our project manager, Helena Wittrich.
