Digital Learning Map 2020: Success Factors of Digital Learning and Teaching in Higher Education 

WorkgroupKnowledge Construction Lab

Project description

The LearnMap project evaluates existing empirical studies on the efficacy of digital teaching and learning at the university and maps national projects, products and concepts using digital media in higher education. For this, a framework model is being developed in order to evaluate existing teaching and learning arrangements from a learning science and psychological perspective, assess their effectiveness and, on this basis, foster the exchange between teachers and researchers.


In this project, we aim to provide a structured overview of the success factors of digital learning and teaching in higher education, which (1) enables comparing different solutions and thus, allows assessing new approaches and concepts; (2) promotes the application of tools and methods across universities, and makes recommendations for the didactic design of teaching and learning arrangements, and (3) allows to make statements on promising networking and promotion strategies in order to exploit synergy effects and implement innovative approaches effectively.


In a meta-study we will summarize existing empirical research results on influence factors on the success of digital learning and teaching in higher education and integrate these into a practice-oriented framework model. In cooperation with the information portal e-teaching.org, we will develop a database that makes the mapped national projects and initiatives visible and therefore stimulates the exchange of best practices. In addition, innovative international developments are taken into account. Based on this, we will develop a benchmarking tool to identify innovative didactic approaches and evaluate national projects and developments with regards to learning-related success factors.


As part of the project, we will organize a conference to discuss the results of the meta-study and further research approaches with national experts. In addition, we plan to conduct a BarCamp which connects researchers in the field of using digital media in higher education with lecturers and other stakeholders (for example, students, content providers). Additionally, online events will be conducted in cooperation with e-teaching.org.
