your concern

The use of digital media in university teaching can bring many advantages for lecturers and students - but often also raises new questions, especially for lecturers: What options do I have to support my teaching with digital media? What legal aspects do I have to consider? Which tools and methods are best suited to my teaching situation, my target group and my learning/teaching objectives? How much effort does the use of a certain tool mean for me - and what are the benefits for me and my students?

These are just a few of the questions you (need to) address if you want to use digital media in your teaching.
With the NIDIT Lunch Bag Session, we would like to offer you regular opportunities, starting in the summer semester of 2022, to clarify these and other questions in exchange with colleagues, to share your own experiences, and to develop new ideas together.


our offer

The NIDIT Lunch Bag Session was set up to offer you the opportunity to discuss all your questions and experiences regarding the use of digital media in university teaching in an informal atmosphere. In the new edition of the Lunch Bag Session, the staff members of the project "NIDIT - Network for Impactful Digital International Teaching Skills" will be available to give you advice and support.

The offer is meant to support you... deal constructively with the use of digital media in university teaching. realistically assess the advantages and disadvantages as well as the costs and benefits of using special e-learning tools. reflect on and design e-learning/blended learning scenarios together with (interdisciplinary) colleagues - and, if necessary, to apply ideas from different subject areas to their own teaching practice.




  • Badges and digital awards with ILIAS and Moodle  (With Albrecht Metzler)

Digital awards for university staff in the form of badges are likely to become more important in the course of future LMS upgrades, but are already available to us now. In this LunchBag session, we will look at the functions, creation/design and awarding of badges within our learning management systems (ILIAS and Moodle). We will also talk about our respective uses in our LMS courses. An outlook on microdegrees and digital backpacks outside the university will round off the LunchBag session.

  • Social Media in Lehre und Forschung am Beispiel Instagram (With Maraike Büst)

Was bedeutet digitale Präsenz für mich als Forscherin oder Forscher und wie beeinflusst es meine Forschung? Welche Rolle spielen Soziale Medien als Lehrende oder Lehrender in meiner Lehrveranstaltung und wie nutzen Studierende Social Media in ihrem akademischen Umfeld?

Social Media ist für viele bereits ein Bestandteil des alltäglichen Lebens und der Freizeit geworden. Nun mehr im akademischen Umfeld angekommen, durchdringen die Kanäle, Plattformen und Praktiken auch Forschung, Lehre und Studium maßgeblich.

Wir stellen uns die Frage, welchen Einfluss hat Social Media auf Forschung, Lehre und Studium und wie können wir diesen Einfluss wiederum selbst steuern und Vorteile für unsere Bedürfnisse nutzen?
