Dialogue Formats and Events

Dialogue formats and events encourage the exchange of experiences and ideas between stakeholders of TU Graz. The events are an essential part of the Vice Rectorate for Academic Affairs' information and communication strategies to support and advance high-quality teaching.

The dialogue formats and events Students’ Workshop with Vice Rector Vorbach, LEHR-Stammtisch (teachers’ discussion group), the Think Tank, and the Lunch & Lehre (Lunch & Teaching) events were created to meet the needs of different target groups and encourage participants to exchange experiences and ideas. In addition, TU Graz employees and students receive information on developments in the field of education at TU Graz. Information is actively and methodically gathered at these events, allowing it to be incorporated into strategic decisions and measures related to teaching at TU Graz. The active participation of students, teachers and administrative staff is critically important at these events to shape innovative processes.

At the Lunch & Lehre (Lunch & Teaching) events, teachers, students and administrative staff can exchange ideas on various topics in an informal setting. The setting of the event varies depending on the topic, but opportunities area always provided for lively discussions with the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs and the heads of his departments.

At the LEHR-Stammtisch (teachers‘ discussion group), TU Graz teachers as well as experts provide detailed information on all topics related to professional teaching at TU Graz. Teachers from all faculties and institutes are invited to participate in these events to actively exchange their experiences and ideas on certain educational topics.

At the Students‘ Workshop with Vice Rector Vorbach, all students at Graz University of Technology have the opportunity to discuss open questions, wishes, ideas and suggestions regarding studies and teaching with the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs and the departments in the field of teaching and learning. Once a semester, a workshop is held together with the HTU to deal with current topics such as studyability, digitalisation or commitment. Of course, there will still be room for students' current concerns.

In the Think Tank, a selected group of TU Graz stakeholder representatives work together in external, moderated workshops to develop ideas and innovative concepts related to the current topics of teaching and learning.

Two young men and two young women sit on green stools and a grey sofa. They talk to each other. On the wall above them is a green speech bubble. On a small table in front of them there is an open laptop.
