The chair of Educational Technology and Instructional Design pursues an approach of design-based research. In cooperation with partners from the educational field, we develop practical solutions as well as theoretical models for the scientific community. 

Research at our lab focuses on learning innovations with digital media. Topics in research are: 

  • the idea of Bildung in a digital epoch  
  • the concept of digital competences and its implications 
  • digital strategies in education   
  • school IT and school development (in networks of schools) 
  • social learning on digital platforms
  • extended realities (AR/VR) and learning 
  • informal learning and professional communities 
  • Open Education: Infrastructures for Open Educational Resources
