Lernwelt Hochschule


Our society is subject to continuous development and constant changes, which can have a significant impact on the way of learning and study concepts at colleges and universities in the areas of qualification and continuing education.

To find suitable answers to these challenges and adequately shape future learning worlds at colleges and universities, the research project “Lernwelt Hochschule” (learning worlds for higher education institutions) has been brought into being. The initiative led by Prof. Dr. Richard Stang (Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart) demonstrates the current German academic landscape in terms of the design of study rooms and addresses questions such as how learning worlds at higher education institutions should be equipped in the future, especially regarding medial and digital but also physical equipment.

The research project launched in 2017 will find answers to these questions before the end of 2019 and create a recommendation allowing higher education institutions to draw up strategic plans for the learning world in question. Besides the project partners of Hamburg University of Applied Sciences and the University of Bamberg, the research project receives financial support from the Dieter Schwarz Foundation.
