  • Do you have an urgent question about hybrid versus presence versus online teaching formats or another didactical concept?
  • Are you currently working on a challenging situation with a student?
  • Do you want low-threshold feedback on a planned teaching intervention or new teaching methods?
  • Are you are looking for a competent and constructive counterpart to work through your new teaching concept together?

Background Information

Instructional design is the practice of systematically planning, developing, and delivering learning materials and learning environments - both digital and face-to-face - with the goal of efficient, effective, engaging, and sustainable knowledge acquisition.



With the Instructional Design Initiative, we support teachers in reflecting on and further developing their teaching didactically - from the teaching strategy to the event conception to the design of teaching and learning materials.
