Education Support Center

We place a major emphasis on innovative learning

The DHBW VS promotes the implementation of new teaching and learning methods to a significant degree through this central institute.

As an executive department of the President’s office, it is responsible for important tasks relating to the provision of advice to lecturers and the orientation of teaching. Of particular importance is the practical educational integration of new media to support teaching. The continuous development and testing of innovative teaching and learning concepts are therefore central components of the tasks entrusted to ESC.
