The Teaching and Learning Center (ZLL) is the central point of contact for teachers at the University of Mannheim with questions related to preparing, designing and conducting lessons in a wide variety of formats. In addition to receiving support in the didactically sound planning and implementation of their (digital) courses, teachers can also benefit from various services – such as individual ILIAS consultations – or further expand their expertise in educational development through a multitude of training courses (including those offered within the framework of the Baden-Württemberg Certificate for Teaching and Learning). Moreover, the ZLL contributes to the development of academic continuing education courses.
To make good teaching visible, the ZLL organizes the annual Tag der Lehre as well as the University of Mannheim Teaching Award. Beyond that, it also offers funding opportunities for innovative teaching projects.
