Our D-Flect is an informal forum for creative exchange within the Design Thinking community and beyond. At this event, outstanding innovators from the most diverse fields are invited to the HPI D-School to share their knowledge and, most of all, their enthusiasm.
For the next D-Flect we're happy to welcome Prof. Dr. Jörg Winterberg, Managing Director of SRH Higher Education GmbH. He will talk about:
From Teaching to Learning: What Has to Change Urgently at Our Universities
Industry and politics have called for change in the teaching and learning culture at German universities for years—without much success. But what do we really know about the efficiency of teaching and learning, and what can actually be implemented in terms of both academic freedom and getting through the bureaucracy of the accreditation process? Probably more than we think. The change from a teaching orientation to a learning one is possible—in fact, it is an urgent necessity. Places where this change has been consistently carried out have a proven track record of success. Join us at the next D-Flect to learn more about the university of the future.
Prof. Dr. Jörg Winterberg is Managing Director of SRH Higher Education GmbH. After completion of his economic studies and PhD, Winterberg assumed a professorship for economics at the Braunschweig / Wolfenbüttel University of Applied Sciences, where he was also appointed Vice President. In addition to teaching assignments in the US, Sweden and Hungary, he is also active as an economic adviser in many developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The D-Flect will take place on July 11, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at the 3rd floor at the HPI main building. The presentation will be held in English.
