The quality of education and teaching is an ongoing development process in which RUB inspires and gets inspired in turn. This is why RUB has implemented a number of in-house programmes to nurture the innovative spirit of its teaching staff. At the same time, the university supports the realisation of teaching projects, takes part in external competition, and helps its lecturers and tutors file all relevant applications.
The “Forschendes Lernen” (“Research-oriented learning”) programme supports the implementation of RUB’s future strategy, especially in Bachelor’s degrees, by funding teaching programmes that enable students to familiarise themselves with and conduct independent research. The 5x5000 competition provides financial backing for development projects in the field of digital teaching and learning. The learning infrastructure programme (“Lerninfrastrukturprogramm”) funds research-oriented equipment of classrooms.
Third-party funding is a good proof of high quality of education at RUB. This is reflected in teaching projects that RUB has secured in Germany-wide competitions.
