The Center for Advanced Teaching and Learning (ZHD) is a central scientific institution of the Faculty of Human Sciences at the University of Cologne.

Our aim is to develop, secure and improve the quality of teaching and learning at the University of Cologne. We help teachers doing "good teaching" – but we believe that there is not only one right way to do so. Rather, we want to help teachers to develop their own teaching attitude, to reflect their own role, to allow joy and enjoyment in teaching, and thereby to strengthen the value of teaching as a whole.
