The Didactics Center in Building K is intended to be a meeting point for questions relating to teaching and learning.
The center includes the LearningLab (a versatile experimentation and teaching room), the film studio, the Immersive LearningLab and coworking areas for students. There will also soon be flexible teaching/learning rooms on the upper floor.

The DidacticsCenter offers space for innovative teaching, project work and agile and creative working methods.


  • Teachers, e.g. for individual teaching appointments
  • Student working groups, e.g. for project work
  • Employees, e.g. for workshops and other meeting culture


In the following video we introduce you to the DidacticsCenter:

The LearningLab can be booked and used for all courses and meetings that require a more active setting. Teachers, student groups and staff can try out different room settings for teaching and learning. In addition to group work, workshop formats and agile methods such as design thinking, simulation games and many forms of project work are conceivable. Digital settings on site in plenary sessions or in small groups are also possible thanks to the tablets, mobile screens and stable Wi-Fi available.

The LearningLab can be booked for individual appointments or the events of an entire semester. The room offers space for 25-30 participants and can be expanded for up to 50 people.

    Examples of possible uses:

    • Project-oriented teaching - e.g. group work to define project goals and draw up a work plan.
    • (Student) project group meetings - working together on the big screen.
    • Design thinking in teaching
    • Presentation training, including VR-supported training units


    • Flexible room layout with movable whiteboards and pinboards
    • A total of 7 mobile and height-adjustable group work tables
    • Bar stools and standing aids that promote agile working methods
    • Large-format multi-touch screens (65 - 85 inches), which can be used for digital display (flipchart/digital board) or virtual group work
    • Course set of tablets including classroom management


    • Moderation material and visualization case
    • Material and tools for prototyping - from glue sticks to Lego Serious Play

    Further material can be obtained on request.

    Special features of the LearningLab

    The special feature of the space is the flexible abundance of equipment and possibilities. The LearningLab is approx. 120 square meters in size, can be divided with a flexible wall in the middle, is set up as a creative, agile project space and is fully digitally equipped. The LearningLab is therefore particularly comprehensively equipped to allow experimentation with a wide range of possibilities and combinations. It is the result of a lengthy process and the equipment to date has been financed by two project grants.

    The furniture consists of height-adjustable, rather small, combinable tables on castors and matching seating. In addition, various group work niches are available in front of the room in the co-working area to enhance the concept. The furniture represents the counter-concept to the fixed rows of seats in traditional rooms, is designed for agile and creative work and is intended in particular to support the activation and exchange of ideas between all those present.

    The other media-didactic equipment aims to overcome predetermined spatial boundaries didactically (and intellectually). Four different teaching/learning settings (4ALL) are available for this purpose, which can also be combined with each other in different sequences. What all settings have in common is that they emphasize the activating character with working materials that are always at hand for everyone present (4ALL) and not just for the teacher.


    By a "real" media didactic setting, we mean the use of mobile whiteboards, pinboards and flipcharts. Moderation and work materials are available to participants on mobile team trolleys (from sticky notes to inspiration cards and timers). Based on the phases of design thinking, observation, brainstorming and prototyping are supported by furniture and materials. Methodological tips and prepared workshop elements are also provided. The appropriate workshop and advisory program for teaching staff and student groups offered by the University Didactics department rounds off the offer.


    The room is equipped with special hardware and software: Interactive projector wall, digital "flips" and large-format multi-touch screens (65-85 inches) as well as a class set of tablets including classroom management are central components of the digital setting. The room also has access to special IT services such as Collaboard, ARSnova, its own Nextcloud and Cryptpad. The digital technology is not primarily used for the purpose of presentation, but should - as in the normal working world - be available to participants for (collaborative) work: From research and creative processes to prototyping. We can also experiment with the methodological advantages of distance learning (chat, anonymous questions, surveys) in face-to-face and hybrid teaching. Suitable didactic concepts, support and supervision are provided by our media didactics expert, who is on site and looks after the room, among other things.


    The integrated Immersive LearningLab can be seen as a gateway to virtual worlds and diversifies the room's offerings with virtual elements. The equipment has been selected so that course participants can immerse themselves in virtual worlds as well as create their own VR worlds (3D scanner, software, experts).


    For focused individual and group work, e.g. project-oriented work, students have access to appropriate furniture in the co-working space. Up to now, students have tended to concentrate on working at home with digital tools and there is hardly any space for joint teamwork - outside of the event rooms - for the alternation of creative collaboration, i.e. open co-working and concentrated individual work, which is also particularly praised in "New Work".


    "There are no limits"

    The LearningLab therefore offers a large number of didactic and methodological possibilities and combinations; everything from classic short lectures to hypermodern virtual group work and back again can be realized in one and the same room. In terms of equipment, the room is virtually over-equipped. This is deliberately designed so that it can fulfill its role as an experimental space. In the spirit of double enabling didactics (Arnold 2019), the four settings (4ALL) can be completely mixed and matched by the users (students and teachers) at any time. This has created a playground that invites everyone to experiment and also allows the methodology to be opened up in terms of the "shift from teaching to learning".

    Immersive LearningLab (I:L:L)


    Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I remember. Let me do it and I will remember.

    Confucius (551 - 479 BC)


    Immersive learning means "diving" into an unknown context in a natural way. Dangerous, difficult or fictitious situations can be simulated and safely mastered and understood. The three-dimensional representation of and interaction with the learning object allows facts to be realistically illustrated and more easily understood by users. In contrast to other media, learning with a virtual medium enables so-called "learning by doing", which demonstrably improves learning success and follows the Confucian statement quoted above. We are happy to accompany you during your first "immersion" and your first experiences, thus enabling a didactically low-threshold introduction. We will also be happy to discuss any project ideas with you.

    The basic principle is: Low-threshold and open to all!

    Open door into Virtual Reality...

    Workshop size:

    The Immersive LearningLab is part of the LearningLab and offers space for 25 to 30 participants. Thanks to the flexible equipment, the Immersive LearningLab can also be used for up to 50 people.

    The 4 E's of the Immersive LearningLab

    1. experience

    We want to enable everyone to "experience" immersive experiences of all kinds in order to feel the sense of presence and its power, especially in the promotion of learning processes! To this end, there will be open "experience hours" where you can simply drop by and try out a few experiences and collaborations. You can also book group appointments.

    2. create

    We want to offer support and advice for teachers and students in the creation of immersive learning/training environments for courses or as part of project and thesis work. To this end, we offer both the complete supply program as well as individual consultations in software, hardware (360 degree cameras, 3D scanners), storytelling and, of course, didactics.

    3. research

    As the Institute for Innovative Teaching and Applied Teaching and Learning Research (I3L), we want to actively promote research (including critical research) into the use of immersive media in university teaching. For this reason, the I:L:L will conduct various forms of accompanying research. Among other things, this will deal with the impact, compatibility and didactic principles of immersive learning processes.

    4. enabling

    We want to make immersive "training" possible for all university members, both in the I:L:L with high-quality glasses and scalable at home with a smartphone and RWU cardboard. An RWU immersive learning platform is to be created for this purpose, which will also record progress and provide feedback with the help of data protection-compliant learning analytics.

    Current projects

    Here you will find a selection of our current projects. Further realized VR projects can be found in our university didactics catalog, which is available in the download area of the university didactics website in the download area of the university didactics website.



    This is a 3D scan of the main building. A scan (digital twin) of the corridors and floors was made within 14 hours. The 3D scan can be integrated into websites, used for navigation or to give a better impression of the surroundings. For example, laboratories can also be virtualized and provided with interactive elements. The scans can also be walked through virtually using VR glasses.
