Print page


The Centre for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ZHL) already offers a broad variety of services in order to further develop teaching, support innovation and projects, and to encourage exchange on teaching. The workshops are open to teachers of all faculties, and partly open for teachers from all Bavarian universities.

The seminar program is funded by the University of Bayreuth and the state of Bavaria. A part of the costs has to be paid by course participants. In part, some of these expenses can be covered by the University of Bayreuth Graduate School Budget (UBTGS), the WiN Academy Bayreuth, or by the respective chair.

Participation Conditions

Please note our participation conditions (i.a. on registration, cancellation, waiting lists, course absence and conduct in seminars).

Participation fees

All participation fees comply with the length of the seminars (meaning work units à 45 minutes) as well as the status of each participant (full- or part-time employee, intern or extern of the University of Bayreuth). Single events are offered cost-neutral (i.a. Training for student tutors, the series “Digital Didactic Shorties” as well as single teaching workshops and peer networking).

  • Two-day seminars, e.g. from 9 am to 5pm, 16 work units: 80€ (reduced: 48€*)
  • 1½-day seminars, e.g. 9 am to 5 pm and 9 am to 12 pm, 12 work units: 60€ (reduced: 36 €*)
  • One-day seminars, e.g. 9 am to 5 pm, 8 work units: 40€ (reduced: 24€*)
  • Half-day seminars, e.g. 9 am to 12:15 pm, 4 work units: 20€ (reduced: 12€*)
  • Short-Seminar offers, e.g. 2 pm to 3:30 pm, 2 work units: 10€ (reduced: 6€*)

* Reduced for part-time employees down to 74,9% working time. The fee refers to the total of all professional activities, whether university intern or extern. You are required to share your status upon registration.

Teachers at universities of applied sciences pay the fee for external participants, being 390€ per day as a rule. The same goes for all teachers at universities outside of Bavaria.

Please pay your participation fees in a timely manner.
