The Leuphana Salon

Teaching is influenced by many parties: teachers as well as students, central institution employees, individual actors and their initiatives. The Leuphana Salon offers everyone the opportunity to influence teaching development, be represented centrally and receive feedback regarding their activities, current considerations and perspectives. The Salon is supported by the network “Leuphana... on the right track!” and uses an open format without strict rules allowing all actors to make use of this campus-wide opportunity for exchange and to present their ideas. The Leuphana Salon forms part of the project “Leuphana... on the right track!“ (LadW). The LadW network advertises Salon events and offers its past experience to contribute to the Salon’s success. If you are interested in participating in the Leuphana Salon, please contact Norbert Sattler, Head of Communication in the LadW project.

Leuphana Salon 2024:Experience innovative classrooms

As society becomes increasingly digitised, the places where teaching and learning take place in universities are also changing: Existing seminar rooms and places of learning are being expanded with media technology, hybridised with digital spaces and scenarios are being simulated virtually. These developments are also being actively promoted at Leuphana.

We are pleased to have held a successful Leuphana Salon on the 24th of January, which presented the latest developments in the areas of innovative teaching and learning spaces, hybrid didactic settings and the use of VR technology at Leuphana.

The event, held in the Experience Lab on the upper floor of the MIZ foyer, focused on three thematic areas. At the beginning of each session, a pitch from the field was presented and insights into proven examples were provided:

Application-oriented VR technology

Hannes Petrowsky, DigiTaL TP1

  •  Demonstration of concrete applications of VR technology at Leuphana University (DigiTaL TP1).
  •  Discussion about the potential of VR for immersive learning experiences and practical applications.
  •  Insight into future developments and possibilities in this field.

Hybrid teaching

  •  Presentation of best practices for the technical realisation of hybrid teaching/learning environments for different formats and group sizes (DigiTaL TP11).
