The educational requirements of industry and society are constantly changing and, therefore, need to be realigned to the current situation where the usage of e-learning tools has constantly increased in all levels of education within the European Union and from an international perspective as well. Therefore, this paper explores new ways of teaching and learning in the context of industrial engineering by exemplary reshaping a lecture for industrial logistics engineering education. These adaptations contribute to the transformation of teaching and learning processes and offer new opportunities of learning to the students in a world characterized by ongoing trends like digitalization, autonomization, ‘glocalization’, pandemics, and environmental disasters. Therefore, the authors discuss new learning platforms by incorporating the latest teaching and learning methods for students to create an opportunity for bridging the gap between traditional teaching methods and the digital generation.
