Podcast 42 - Teaching and Research

Episode 13 - Prof. Dr. Sönke Knutzen talks about university in the digital world


Digitalization is changing the way we live and work in a profound way. We are experiencing and feeling the changes everywhere: in the way we shop, the way we travel, the way we communicate or the way we get our information. But what does this mean for our educational system? What does the new generation need to know and be able to do in order to be able to work for a lifetime? And what role does the university play in this? Do we need a new concept of university education?

Episode 12 - Ronny Röwert from digital.learning.lab talks about education in the digital age


In an increasingly digital environment, education, teaching design and learning processes are confronted with new requirements and change potentials. When can education become better and fairer through digital possibilities and when can it not? Ronny Röwert speaks in our current episode on the basis of previous personal and professional experiences about why education can benefit from technology in digital times, but does not necessarily have to. He has brought along this digital.learning.lab as a platform and source of inspiration for teaching design in digital times with fresh news.

Ronny Röwert is a research assistant at the Institute for Technical Education and University Didactics (ITBH) at the TU Hamburg.

The digital.learning.lab starts the next phase

The platform opens up and invites teachers to join in

Digital, interactive and open: Teachers can now publicly create and share their own teaching modules on the digital.learning.lab platform.


The digital.learning.lab was developed by the Institut für Technische Bildung und Hochschuldidaktik (ITBH) at the Technische Universität Hamburg (TUHH), the Behörde für Schule und Berufsbildung (BSB) and the Joachim Herz Stiftung.
Since the launch of the platform in September 2018, more than 180 building blocks have been downloaded and reused for teaching purposes at The offer ranges from instructions for the production of scientific podcasts to stop-motion videos for chemistry lessons and digital platforms for the joint development of short stories.

Now the platform opens and invites teachers from all over Germany to participate. Through the further development of digital.learning.lab, teachers can develop building blocks with teaching impulses and thus enter into an interactive exchange with each other. For quality assurance purposes, new content will be viewed by experts from the Hamburg School Authority and the TUHH.

Further information can be found on the website of digital.learning.lab

Podcast 42 - Teaching and Research

Episode 11 - Axel Dürkop talks about socio-technical systems and openness in teaching and research


Information technology systems in teaching and research do not exist without the human being who selects, develops and interacts with them. It is therefore only logical to define these systems as socio-technical systems (cf. Herrmann, 2003). Axel Dürkop talks in our current episode about how this understanding of technology influences his work and what role the values of openness play in it. It becomes clear how his "first life" as a theatre director, musician and performer influenced his work as a researcher, lecturer and developer at the university.

First Mayor Tschentscher visits DigiNet.Air

Cooperation with companies started

On 09 October 2019, Hamburg's First Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher visited the "Network Digital Learning for the Aviation Industry of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region". In the project office in the Harburg inland port, the project team showed him how it supports small and medium-sized enterprises in particular in the development and implementation of change processes within the framework of digitisation and develops further training measures for future competence requirements.

The Institute for Technical Education and University Didactics (ITBH) at the TUHH develops and evaluates the didactic concept of the teaching and learning modules and has developed a procedure for analysing the educational needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in times of digital structural change and, building on this, for designing education modules that are appropriate for addressees.

digital.learning.lab at the Conference Education Digitisation 2019 in Berlin

Further developments of the digital.learning.lab

The Forum Bildung Digitalisierung invited interested parties from education practice, education policy, education administration, science and civil society to the conference Bildung Digitalisierung in Berlin on 12 and 13 September 2019. About 1,000 educational actors from all over Germany came together under the heading "Next Practice - Educational Innovations for Digital Change".

image source:

Prof. Sönke Knutzen and Ronny Röwert used the opportunity to discuss possible further developments of the digital.learning.lab in a Werkstattgespräch workshop with the teachers and other educational practitioners present. The digital.learning.lab, as a joint project with the German School and Vocational Training Authority and the Joachim Herz Foundation, provides teachers with impulses for digitally supported teaching. It combines open digital teaching modules, a comprehensive toolbox and trends with tips, practical examples and research findings on learning in digital times. In the workshop discussion, possibilities for motivating teachers to make more effective use of corresponding platforms were discussed. In addition, the tension between quality assurance by an editorial team and at the same time low-threshold access paths for teachers to upload new content was discussed. Subsequently, discussions were held to improve the integration and networking with other projects such as digiLL.

SCIL Trend and Community Day: AI meets Education

How Artificial Intelligence Changes Learning & Competence Development


The ITBH was asked by the University of St. Gallen to give a lecture on the 6th scil Trend & Community Day on the potentials of AI in vocational education and training

The use of artificial intelligence in teaching and learning environments is still in its infancy. How can augmentation strategies look like to profitably use AI for education in the learning process? Education bots and chatbots are the first solutions to be shown here in prototypical implementations. So far, it is mainly assistance systems that support a learning process, but the potential becomes visible. AI can, for example, automatically generate content and produce scientific publications or be used on information and instruction platforms to offer individualised units for knowledge transfer. How will we deal with this in the future as educational designers?


Dr. Henning Klaffke and Prof. Dr. Sabine Seufert with "Pepper"

Dr. Henning Klaffke of the ITBH presented the results of a feasibility study carried out this year by the ITBH in the lecture "Potentials of AI for Vocational Education and Training". The aim of the feasibility study was to identify the potential of an AI to support the curating process of an online editorial team for a website in the field of vocational education and training.

Das ITBH ist Mitglied der Plattform „Digitale Zukunft: Lernen. Forschen. Wissen“ des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung

Das Lernen und Lehren in der akademischen, schulischen und beruflichen Bildung wird durch die Möglichkeiten und Herausforderungen der Digitalisierung in einer Geschwindigkeit und Tiefe verändert, wie wir es bislang noch nicht erlebt haben.

Um die damit verbundenen Fragen zur beantworten, hat das Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) ein Expertengremium „Digitale Zukunft: Lernen. Forschen. Wissen.“ Ins Leben gerufen. Die Auftaktveranstaltung fand am 29. August statt. Unter dem Vorsitz von Anja Karliczek diskutierten Vertreter*innen aus Wissenschaft, Zivilgesellschaft und Wirtschaft Ansätze für allgemein- und berufsbildende Schulen und Ausbildungsbetriebe.

Das ITBH, vertreten durch Prof. Sönke Knutzen und Dr. Tina Ladwig, ist Mitglied der Plattform und kann sich durch die vielfältige Expertise in der schulischen Bildung, dem Digital.Learning.Lab, der akademischen Bildung durch die Hamburg Open Online University und der beruflichen Bildung durch die Kompetenzwerst@tt einbringen.

Anfang Oktober trifft sich die Plattform in Berlin, um konkrete Projektideen auszuarbeiten. Im November folgt die Vorstellung der Ideen auf dem Digitalgipfel in Dortmund. 700 Bildungsexpert*innen werden dort über zwei Tage Bildungsinnovationen präsentieren und diskutieren.

Die Konferenz #KonfBD19 kann im Livestream verfolgt werden.
