DigiSelF - Digitalisierung als Herausforderung und Innovation in der Hochschullehre: Einsatz digitaler Hilfsmittel zur Förderung von Selbststeuerung



The "Corona semesters" have revealed various opportunities and challenges with regard to digital teaching. Inequalities in the learning requirements of students, especially with regard to skills for self-directed learning, have increased, for example. In addition, the functions of exams that could support these skills have not been fully exploited. Through "DigiSelF", comprehensive forms of digital testing as well as digital measures to support self-directed learning are to be developed and a sustainable in-terdisciplinary network for transfer is to be established. Innovative teaching measures were developed, but often remained exclusively in individual (subject) areas and were not used university-wide. 


The project "DigiSelF" pursues the goal of developing digital measures to promote the self-directed learning of students in the facets of content/cognition, metacognition/resource management and motivational and volitional control. In addition, these levels will also be addressed through the development of digital assessment formats. These are understood as comprehensive assessment feedback. The third goal is to establish long-term networked structures for the development of teaching innovations. These goals are pursued in different ways and with different focuses by a total of 6 work packages at all faculties of the University of Paderborn.
