Improving teaching & learning together






The Baden-Württemberg Centre for Teaching and Learning (HDZ) was founded in 2001 by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts (MWK) and the nine Baden-Württemberg state universities. In 2007, funding was taken over by the universities.

Every state university has an educational development unit. On 1 January 2019, the universities of education also became members of the HDZ. Their educational development unit is located at Ludwigsburg University of Education.

The HDZ strives to improve the quality of teaching and consequently raise the overall quality of degree programmes for students. In order to reach these two objectives, the HDZ has developed two sets of measures to be implemented. The first is to expand comprehensive continuing education opportunities in the field of educational development and the second consists of structurally improving the conditions for teaching.

In 2015, the HDZ was successfully accredited by the accreditation committee of the German Association for Educational and Academic Staff Development in Higher Education (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Hochschuldidaktik, dghd). In 2022, it was re-accredited.
