About us Aince 2004 the HDZ at the HSG has offered a wide range of services designed to help lecturers develop teaching skills. Our Centre of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (HDZ) was founded in 2004 at the behest of the HSG with the aim of developing and enhancing teaching quality over the long term within the framework of general quality assurance and development. The following must be taken into consideration in this context: The standards lecturers set for themselves and the demands placed upon the quality of their teaching are constantly increasing. Students expect high-quality teaching and state this in their assessments of classes. The range of courses taught at different levels (Assessment, Bachelor, Master) make higher demands on lecturers’ teaching techniques and skills – as do the different methods of examination used at the corresponding levels. New knowledge gained from research on teaching and theories about assessing students necessitates greater use of new media as well as new ways of lecturing, and thus also the reviewing and updating of teaching knowledge and skills. Internationally, universities are placing greater emphasis on lecturers attaining teaching qualifications. We deliver a range of options for executive education and advisory services to support persons teaching at the HSG – this could be you.
