Digital learning, research and project management

At the Chair of Complex Multimedia Application Architectures at the University of Potsdam, Educational technologies are developed and researched. In the FoLD project, usage scenarios for the developed technologies are examined and supported using different media. It follows up on our experience with the "Potsdam Quality Pact Project E-Learning in Study Areas (eLiS)", the accompanying research project "Research Orientation in the Introductory Study Phase (FideS)" and the "Association for Action-Oriented Learning in the VR Painting Workshop (HandLeVR)". By aligning digital processes and tools with the didactic needs of the project partners, explorative learning in university teaching and the training of digital literacy are promoted.

As a project coordinator, we also ensure the systematic design of usage scenarios, the documentation of approaches, intermediate and final results, the evaluation of the measures implemented and the transparency in the project. In this way, we promote interdisciplinary and cooperative work, and through a time-based and task-oriented digital process planning, we support the achievement of the various project goals.
Workshops with the entire FoLD project team as well as the scientific advisory board also provide physical meeting spaces for the mutual exchange of knowledge, for meta-evaluations and discussions about the research questions of the project. Furthermore, publications in interdisciplinary teams on research results are encouraged in order to strengthen scientific cooperation. In addition, an evaluation concept is developed together with all those involved, which examines the effectiveness of the teaching projects in the FoLD project, as well as ensuring the quality and sustainability of the courses by aligning them with users.
