Dritte Förderlinie zur digitalen Hochschulbildung
How valuable is the role played by online-supported teaching and learning methods at higher education institutions? What added value do they provide, and what technical, didactic and organisational obstacles need to be overcome in connection with them? The funding line "Research on digital higher education" ("Forschung zur digitalen Hochschulbildung"), which was announced by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in February 2016, focuses on higher education institutions' current e-learning practice. In addition, it studies the potential applications of new technical developments from other societal areas.
The kick-off event for this funding line took place on 3 and 4 July 2017. Representatives of the funded projects presented their projects and discussed current relevant issues with experts in scientific and application-oriented subject areas.
