Don't miss this talk in German by Prof. Dr. Beger.
I consider it a great presentation.

The motto of this year's GMW congress, 12 - 14 September 2007 in Hamburg was : reinventing learning - rethinking university.

After two brilliant opening keynotes by Prof. Dr. Beger and Prof. Dr. Boltz aspects of - didactic imagination, creative forms of evaluation and quality development, Higher Education reforms: approaches, strategies, concepts - were being dealt with from different perspectives of learning, teaching and organization.

One of the highlights was the Medida-Prix-Award in the categories "Digital media in academic teaching" and "Academic development with digital media".
