TV tips for the classroom

A valuable resource for teaching that is still not very well-known: for many years now, Manfred Pfiffner (upper secondary level at Zurich University of Teacher Education) has been compiling monthly TV recommendations in relation to general education.

The selected documentaries and feature films are also suitable for teaching at grammar schools and lower secondary level – especially for German, history, economics, ethics, religion, art, philosophy, education, psychology and for STEM subjects. The programmes are also useful for personal development.


The recommended programmes are now available for you to record together on To do so, tick the box “Additional video collections” in your profile.
