This paper presents case studies that were carried out at VET institutions in 2017 as the main part of the project. A special workshop format called Raumwerkstattis the primary focus of the paper. The workshop was developed within the project Lehrraum_digitaland, with regard to the relevance of physical learning environments in VET, it was conducted in the form of case studies with trainees and apprentices.
