Special features regarding teachingTeaching in the department is characterised by a combination of knowledge transfer and application. Wherever it makes sense from a didactic point of view, the lecturers support their classroom teaching with digital offerings. During the course of study, the proportion of self-determined learning increases continuously through elective and in-depth options as well as projects. The lecturers have extensive professional experience outside the university and remain in contact with practice, e.g. in the form of cooperative research projects, supervision of practical semesters and the "Media Forum" for the exchange of information in lectures.

Special features regarding research and developmentThe faculty works on applied research projects in the field of human-technology interaction, such as digital teaching and learning support, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR/MR), and support for the everyday lives of older people - with funding from public and private sources. The faculty is involved in the state priority projects to develop socio-technical solutions for people with dementia and positive futures. In the LivingLab, the university is conducting research together with industrial companies in the field of VR/AR technology.

Depending on their needs, prospective company founders receive individual support from professors. There are spin-offs in the fields of web development, real-time 3D and 3D scanning. The department is also involved in start-up activities, e.g. the Düsseldorf Start-Up Week.
