9 4. University Highlights Wilhelm von Humboldt´s University Made in Germany (1810) Basic idea: No more regurgitation of knowledge, instead: encourage productive thinking Quote: „Just as primary instruction makes the teacher possible, so he renders himself dispensable through schooling at the secondary level. The university teacher is thus no longer a teacher and the student is no longer a pupil. Instead the student conducts research on his own behalf and the professor supervises his research and supports him in it.” Holger Hinz, IU Bloomington, March
