Higher Education Development

Higher Education Development at TU Graz comprises planning, implementation and (further) development of teaching. Apart from strategic higher education development, the primary focus is on the use of innovative didactic models in higher education, if necessary supported by educational technologies. The continual development of teaching consists of the following key points:
  • Enhancing teaching as a central pillar of the University by means of strategic work and the derivation of measures for further higher education development.
  • Support with the development of curricula.
  • Strengthening of the teaching profile of teaching staff by means of higher education didactics training and further qualification measures in the form of continuing education, trainings, lectures, guidance and events.
  • Innovation development in teaching through continual further development of measures of higher education didactics and the integration of innovative forms of teaching and learning as well as educational technologies.
  • Support of teaching through constant optimisation and further development of existing provisions as well as the adaptation to new requirements.
  • Ongoing evaluation for integration of the assessment and valuation of measures taken regarding teaching.
The aim of these measures is to ensure an excellent internationally oriented training of graduates of occupational fields in research and industry.

By means of the strategic project Education 2020, a central pillar of teaching is being created anew – higher education development. A high-quality and sustainable higher education development can only be designed together with students and teaching staff.


Based on this strategy of academic affairs, TU Graz focuses on applying short-, medium- and long-term measures. These are coordinated with the student lifecycle and impact students and teaching staff directly. The Vice Rectorate for Academic Affairs is primarily responsible for applying the strategy of academic affairs.

These specific measures, together with the strategic project Lehre 2020 (Education 2020) led by the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, are implemented by the following service departments (in alphabetical order):

The team of the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs interacts with all organisational units or institutions of TU Graz in order to make the strengths of the entire university visible, and to work together to achieve the goals of the strategy of the academic affairs.
