Academic teaching will be in the spotlight at the annual DIES LEGENDI. DIES LEGENDI 2021 will provide the setting for the ceremonial presentation of the Teaching Awards 2021 and the one-time "Teaching in a Time of Pandemic Award" (LiP Awards) on 23 November from 12:00 o'clock.

This year' DIES LEGENDI will focus on the current question of what university teaching should look like after the pandemic: How can the experience gained in digital teaching be transformed for the future? What has proven successful and what has not? What will be the balance between face-to-face teaching and digital teaching in the future?

Under the title "Presence, Hybrid, Online - Potentials for Teaching after the Pandemic", the expert panel of the Academy for Teaching Development invites teachers and students of our university to participate: DIES LEGENDI offers the opportunity to exchange experiences, to be inspired by excellent teaching concepts and to develop joint ideas for actively shaping teaching after the pandemic. The panel discussion offers the opportunity to discuss the topic "What works? What remains? University teaching after the pandemic" to be discussed together and across the university.

Registration was possible until 19 November 2021, 12:00. All registered will receive more detailed information on the course of the event on 22.11.2021.

For the duration of the event (12 a.m. - 5 p.m.), all regular courses will be cancelled (dies academicus), so that all teachers and students will be able to participate in DIES LEGENDI.
