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.
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...
...to deal constructively with the use of digital media in university teaching.
...to realistically assess the advantages and disadvantages as well as the costs and benefits of using special e-learning tools.
...to 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.
Virtual reality and augmented reality offer numerous possibilities for university teaching. Whether as a supplement to face-to-face teaching or as an immersive and fully comprehensive virtual course, the new technology offers a wide range of applications. What is the difference between virtual reality and augmented reality? Where is the technology already being used in higher education and what are the advantages for my own teaching concept? We will test various VR headsets and applications on site in our LAB for Innovative Teaching in Giessen and would like to offer enough space for your own experiences.
