didactica – continuing education in teaching and learning at UZH and ETH Zurich


The courses offered by the ‘didactica’ program are intended for all lecturers and teaching staff of the University of Zurich and the ETH Zurich. Consequently, the courses focus primarily on the central questions related to the design of study programs and modules, the planning of lectures and seminars and the integration of this planning into teaching. In addition, questions related to, for example, quality development and the particular features of university teaching are also given due attention.

The courses are intended for lecturers and teaching staff of all disciplines, although some courses pay particular attention to the specific aspects and traditions of selected disciplines; these are referred to accordingly in the course titles. Each course makes its own specific contribution to the continued development of comprehensive teaching proficiency. They are intended for staff at all stages and levels of their academic career; only a few selected courses are limited to a specific target group.


All courses not only provide new input but also encourage the active acquisition and implementation of the knowledge gained. In order to promote the transfer of knowledge and ensure it has a lasting effect, the main focus is on critical and discursive reflection as well as on how to apply and utilize the knowledge gained in the participants’ own teaching.

Target participants The courses of the didactica program are intended for all instructors, doctoral students and other persons involved in teaching at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich.
