Lecture Hall 4.0

The project "Lecture Hall 4.0" enables us to further develop the equipment of the large lecture halls at the RWTH Aachen University. Thus we support various teaching and learning concepts and provide ways for using new possibilities of digitalization in higher education.

Optimizing teaching and learning processes in lecture halls

In the Lecture Hall 4.0 project, the media technology equipment in large lecture halls at the RWTH is being further developed. Close integration with e-learning offerings creates the best possible conditions for lecturers and students to actually use all of today's possibilities of digitalization.

Within the duration of the project, requirements for the large lecture halls are described and a concept for their implementation is developed. In the future, this concept will serve as a model for the construction of new lecture halls and the renovation of existing ones.

Our goals

Technology
Teaching in the lecture hall is optimally supported by modern and networked information, communication and media technology
Communication
Lecturers and students communicate as directly, interactively and undisturbed as possible
Learning
Students are optimally supported in the learning process before, during and after the lecture
Teaching
Lecturers are optimally supported in their lecture from preparation to implementation and documentation
