With the contribution "Was zeichnet „gute“ digitale Lehre aus? Gelingensbedingungen digital gestützter Lehrveranstaltungen und deren Zusammenhänge mit verschiedenen Lernoutcomes" (What characterizes "good" digital teaching? Conditions for success of digitally supported teaching and its correlation with various learning outcomes), NIDIT team member Henrike Kärchner participated in the JFMH conference, which took place from 11 - 13 May 2022.

At the latest since the COVID-19 pandemic, digitally supported teaching scenarios and concepts have become part of everyday university life. But what actually characterizes a successful innovative digital teaching event and what could teachers pay particular attention to? On the basis of comprehensive evaluation survey data from four universities in Hesse, four different conditions for the success of digital courses (flexibility, individualization, increased efficiency and interaction) were confirmed and presented in detail. In addition, empirical findings on the relationships between conditions of success and various learning and performance outcomes (including learning gains, participation, self-regulated learning, and motivation) were reported, and resulting practical implications for instructors were discussed.

Henrike Kärchner is a psychologist who has been working as a research assistant in the Educational Psychology group (Prof. Dr. Malte Schwinger) at Philipps-Universität Marburg since 2018 and is conducting research on learning and teaching processes as well as learning outcomes in digital educational contexts as part of her dissertation.

Currently, she is conducting quantitative evaluations of digitally supported teaching and learning opportunities in the evaluation team of the collaborative project (NIDIT) "Network for Impactful Digital International Teaching Skills", as she did during her two-year activity in the Hesse-wide collaborative project "Digitally Supported Teaching and Learning in Hesse", and is developing suitable instruments for this purpose (e.g.
