Innovation in Teaching and Continuing Education

The TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning uses innovations such as educational technologies to ensure ideal learning success.

[Translate to English:]

Digitization opens up new potential for teaching and continuing education. The resulting "educational technology" enriches learning in many ways - from digital tools in face-to-face events to digital formats designed to accompany onsite classes to complete online formats such as Massive Open Online Courses.

Educational technology makes learning easier, more motivating and more effective. At the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, we combine proven teaching and learning formats with innovative technologies such as virtual reality and digital coaching.

Media and Didactics

In the Innovation Lab of ProLehre | Media and Didactics we review and analyze new findings in teaching and learning research as well as technological, political and structural developments. We experiment with new technologies and teaching scenarios and run innovative pilot projects for university teaching.

Center for Educational Technologies

At the EdTech Center, interdisciplinary research teams investigate the effectiveness of digital tools for learning and teaching. New applications are developed and tested in the practice of higher education teaching and continuing education.


Digital Programs der Executive and Professional Education

At TUM we attach importance not only to conveying the need to prepare for and lead digitization, but equally to maximizing the potential of digital methods and tools within our portfolio. With our TUM Center for Digital Leadership Development we are continually developing new tools to enhance the learning experience, for example our Digital Coach Emma.



The TUM identified the benefits of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) early on. As a result, it is the first German university to publish its own MOOCs on renowned platforms in the USA.Teaching at TUM is enriched by the constantly growing offering and creates access to education at the highest level.
