What could be nicer than an enthusiastic professor? Dirk Reichelt, Professor of Information Management, meets his visitors right at the elevator on the ninth floor of the central building of the Dresden University of Applied Sciences. Something like anticipation can be seen in the eyes of the tall man in the burgundy shirt, as if he had prepared a special gift.

The meetings that took place as part of the initiative really helped him get the idea of demonstration-based teaching off the ground. Even Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Höttges used a 5G project initiated by Prof. Frank Fitzek (see p. 11) to make a presentation. There’s an online video of Höttges moving a robot in the same way Piechnick had just demonstrated to us. For Piechnick, it was a eureka moment: “You always need a place and a setting in which you can get into conversation with other people. Otherwise you’ll never make any progress.”
