Will we replace professors with avatars in the future? Will there be only one central learning library and will mixed reality be the norm? Do we even still need a physical campus? These questions and more occupied 30 students from all disciplines and from throughout Germany on the opening weekend of Theme Week during a design thinking-inspired hackathon. After an exclusive pitch training, the individual teams presented their results, ideas, prototypes and visions for the campus of the future at the 2018 HFD Networking Meeting. The network members used the occasion to talk directly with the innovators about the visions and prototypes the students worked on.
