Director´s Research Group

The research group "Education in a Digital World" investigates the advancing digitalization of the society as well as the resulting challenges and opportunities for teaching and learning processes within and beyond educational institutions. The individual prerequisites of learners and teachers, the institutional framework conditions and the insights of learning psychology are taken into account.


Our research focuses on digital media as means of acquiring competences and digital media as a subject of education. While the first topic focuses on the potential of new learning methods and practices (also with regard to non-formal and informal learning), the second explores the prerequisites for using digital media in a responsible manner.


If you are interested in our research, please send us an email to forschungsgruppe-digital(at)


We look forward to your questions and suggestions!
