Panel discussion: good teaching practices today

Panel discussion with Theresia Bauer, Minister of Science, as part of the “Yes, it’s #Humboldt” series

June 21, 2018 12:00 PM   until 2:00 PM  

As part of the event series “Yes, it’s #Humboldt”, Minister of Science Theresia Bauer will be debating the topic “good teaching practices today”, together with representatives from the University of Stuttgart, the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, and the Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart on June 21, 2018. What defines a good university lecturer, why is the quality of the teaching so important and what makes a study program successful?

So far, six events in the “Yes, it’s #Humboldt” series, organized by the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg for Science, Research and Art (MWK), have been held at different universities across Baden-Württemberg. On June 21, 2018, the Minister of Science Theresia Bauer will be coming together with students, teachers, and representatives from the field to discuss good teaching practices as one of the core components of a university education.

“Good teaching practices inspire a desire to learn new things, they animate students to try things out for themselves, to make discoveries, to think outside the box and to experiment. To enable all of those things to happen, the conditions have to be right and teachers need to be engaged and enthusiastic and take their teaching just as seriously as research and transfer. It is very important to me to have the opportunity to talk to students and teachers. In previous years, the events series “Yes, it’s #Humboldt” has enabled us to visit many exciting projects and experience how each individual university implements the topic of “good teaching practices”. The projects might all be different, but they all have one thing in common, they aim to help students successfully complete their chosen study program. I am looking forward to our closing event in Stuttgart, and to finding out how teachers and students are supporting high-quality teaching practices”, says Minister of Science Theresia Bauer of the coming event.

The following people will be participating in the discussion:

State initiative from the Ministry for Science, Research and Art
This series of events was developed as part of two state initiatives: “Wissenschaft lernen und lehren (WILLE)” and “Strukturmodelle in der Studieneingangsphase”, through which the state funds 23 universities and a total of 49 university teaching projects and an individual study program.

Accompanying exhibition: teaching and learning projects at universities in Stuttgart 
As a result of these initiatives, the three participating universities have been able to implement and fund exciting teaching and learning projects. These projects are presented in the accompanying exhibition.

The University of Stuttgart will be presenting the projects “Stuttgarter Lernwerkstätten zur Vernetzung in der Studi­eneingangsphase” and “Stuttgarter Change Labs: Studieren – Engagieren – Verändern”. Innovative projects from the HFT Stuttgart are “WILLE: Neue Wege der projektbasierten Lehre und des Lernens” and “Strukturmodelle: Gestuftes HFT-Studienmodell 2016”. The State Academy of Art and Design will be introducing the projects “WILLE: Forschungs-Labor-Akademie-Gymnasien (FLAG)” and “Strukturmodelle: Interdisziplinäres Denken und Arbeiten in der Studienein­gangsphase”.
