The Core Concept

Our blended learning concept consists of three components

Local community

Local community

Online learning does not unfold its full potential in isolation. We need a social context in which people can share what they have learned and help each other. We need the dynamics of a community to make sure that everyone is motivated throughout the learning journey. In order to bring our TechLabs community together and learn collectively, we have various meeting formats during the regular semester.

Online Learning

Online Learning

Our participants learn tech skills in one of our online learning tracks. For each of the tracks, our curriculum experts carefully compiled the best online learning resources available in various formats. Because we want to make sure that both a coding beginner or already experienced techie can learn something new in our program, we individualize our participant’s learning paths based on prior knowledge and learning goals.

Project Work

Project Work

The overarching goal of the online learning component of our program is that the learning resources of our tracks enable our participants to take part in their own tech project in which they solve an open problem. Our mentors are experts in their respective field and are happy to support the project groups in case of technical issues and questions regarding the project scope or project management.
