Since the winter semester 2008/2009, the ZAWiW of the Ulm University performed an online lecture series in cooperation with various universities and institutions for the development of senior citizens in the whole federal territory.

In the summer semester 2017, 15 university institutes of scientific continuing education - all members of the Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft Wissenschaftliche Weiterbildung für Ältere (BAG WiWA) of the German Society for Scientific continuing Education and Distance Learning (DGWF) – will offer a nationwide online lecture series.
The theme is this time:

Reformation and Revolution
Social change and its transitions

In four events, representatives from a number of scientific disciplines address the topic and examine it from different perspectives. The special about this is that the lectures are transmitted by videoconferencing from the university where the lecturer is held, to the lecture halls of all the other involved institutions. In addition, the presentations of the lectures are made available to a broader audience via the Internet, regardless of time or place.

The series does not only addresses senior students, but also to other students of all disciplines, pupils, teachers and university staff, as well as other interested parties. Participation is free.
