Teaching Symposium

The Teaching Symposium is the follow-up event to the Teaching Day: dies legendi – an internal university event on the topic of teaching and learning culture, at which TUM’s winners of teaching awards were honored in a festive setting and had the opportunity to publicly present their projects. In addition, the event offered participants space for intensive professional exchange.

With the Teaching Symposium, TUM aims to open the dies legendi to all interested stakeholders in the national and international higher education landscape and thus create a regular platform for current developments in teaching. The spectrum of topics ranges from (media) didactic methods and competence-oriented testing to lifelong learning and the opening of universities.

In order to discuss these developments, TUM invited participants to the first Teaching Symposium in October 2015. Experts from various universities examined the topic of "Individual teaching and learning paths" from different perspectives. The event took place at TUM's downtown campus.
