Ideas in practice
The realisation of student ideas can be promoted using funds from resources made available as part of the joint Federal and State programme for better study conditions and higher quality teaching.
The Ideas Competition for Students regularly provides the university with a variety of proposals on how it could improve conditions for studying and learning. A key aspect of this is not only to identify but also to use potential for improving academic quality. With this goal, and with the support of various stakeholders within the university, Teaching and Learning Ideas Management promotes activities and projects for improvements within the university and ensures their sustainable implementation.
Which projects are currently being implemented?
Students design e-learning
The Digital Humanisties offer a new self-study unit SK.DH.21 E-learning
. With this exercise, students can expand their skills in the area of learning content and strategies and can transfer them to designing digital learning modules.
A new certificate is to be introduced with which students can acquire knowledge about European policy issues from various disciplines. With this additional qualification, career opportunities on the European job market will increase.
In future, lecture recordings should have the option of an automatical transcription and/or translation. This would make studying easier for those who have a hearing impairment, but it also helps all students (e.g. when working in a noisy environment, students with children, international students) for easier understanding.
Digital 3D outcrops database
Geological outcrops should be recorded by photo and 3D model in a database so that students can gain experience on "virtual field trips" when they cannot go into the terrain (because of Corona or students with impairments) or if they want to view outcrops around the world.
PEBL – Peer-based Learning
Students should experience a special learning-teaching experience when they learn different competences from each other and develop didactic competences in (intercultural) tandems.
Go abroad: Internships in other countries
With an additional qualification, students should be prepared for an internship abroad and gain insights into the job market, application modalities, language and culture.
