And the winner is

Embedded in the Day of Teaching, Prof. Dr. Jörg Homberger was awarded for his outstanding contribution "IT in Logistics" in the Information Logistics course of studies with the "Teaching Award 2019 of the HFT Stuttgart" by Rector Prof. Rainer Franke.

In his award-winning lecture, the students work on a practice-oriented project combining the teaching content from two courses "Operations Research" and "IT in Logistics". A particular success factor of these courses is the generic substructure of the course. It runs as a common thread through the associated Moodle course and through the students' own textbook. In addition, students are encouraged to participate actively in the design of the course and co-determine the structure of the exam by signing a contract. Students are supported in solving complex practical problems by a web-based e-learning system. Their solutions compete with the solutions of other students. A special incentive for them is offered by the possibility to dispute Professor Homberger's proposed solution at this point, according to the motto "Beat the Prof!

All 14 nominated courses became visible in a poster gallery. The approximately 100 visitors were able to admire many great teaching concepts. Rector Prof. Rainer Franke expressed his thanks, recognition and appreciation to all the nominated professors.
