Virtual Training Tools

The current situation shows how important digital teaching and learning formats currently are and – even more so – will be in the future at universities, but also in training and learning situations in the theatre and event sector. In cooperation with teachers and students of the study programme Theatre and Event Technology and Management at Beuth Hochschule Berlin we are developing new teaching and learning tools in Virtual Reality.





Using a practical and project-oriented approach, we develop and test concrete scenarios, e.g. for the construction of a chain hoist, safety signs in event rooms, rehearsal stage setups and logistics exercises. The result is a series of digital training units which will be incorporated into daily training in the future and will establish new ways of learning. The cooperation will be carried out in conjunction with the Erasmus+ project ETTE – the European Theatre Technicians Education Project.
