Continuing Education

The quality of teaching depends on the didactic and methodological skills of the teaching staff. The training programme offered by the Teaching Service provides opportunities and inspiration for developing and extending these teaching skills. It is an impulse and an inspiration, but also a protected space for collegial exchange and discourse about one's own teaching experiences and challenges.

The Teaching Service offers a wide range of opportunities for the further training of Leuphana's teaching staff.

Workshops & Courses

We regularly offer web workshops that focus on the possibilities of using digital tools in digitally supported teaching.
Some of these can also be attended as part of the programmes.

We are currently offering a series of workshops on the topic of "AI skills for teachers". Further information can be found on the workshop series website.
