Digitalisation in teaching

In the wake of digitalisation, the competencies acquired by students in their degree course are changing – including for example new research methods, networked and time-shifted working or innovative contents such as the utilisation of virtual reality.

Interactive educational games, remote labs, videos presenting the topics covered in the most recent lectures, or comprehensive collections of materials: RUB lecturers and tutors use digital technologies for their research-based teaching that fosters the practical approach. Thus, they create flexible teaching-studying scenarios that are independent of time and location, and they facilitate inclusive learning.

At the same time, RUB lecturers and tutors nurture a critical and thoughtful attitude towards digital technology and virtual media in their students. Thus, RUB prepares its students for an increasingly more digitalised workplace and living environment.

Our Credo

Digitalisation of teaching makes it possible to …

  • enhance seminars and lectures with digital resources.
  • use freely accessible teaching materials and give others access to one’s own teaching materials.
  • perform competence-oriented assessments with digital examinations.
  • implement international online teaching formats.
  • prepare international students for a degree course at RUB.
  • provide mentoring and assistance digitally to exchange students during their semester abroad.
  • render teaching-learning processes more flexible, family-friendly and inclusive.

Digitalisation strategy in teaching

Man working in virtual reality

It began with the Rectorate discussing the subject of digitalisation with the faculties, followed by an in-depth exploration of the relevant matters and a decentralised inventory. The result: a sustainable digitalisation strategy in teaching with five key areas:

  • Digital competence development and teaching-learning scenarios
  • Assessment and evaluation
  • Internationalisation
  • Inclusion
  • Infrastructure and support

Digitalisation strategy

University programme

The Rectorate at RUB provides financial support to the faculties under the patronage of the university programme “Digital Teaching" (German), in order to enable them to optimise their digitalisation processes in all areas of education.

E-learning in teaching

E-learning constitutes a crucial element of many lectures and seminars at RUB. Lecturers and tutors are provided a wealth of programmes, services, and tools in order to digitally enhance their seminars and lectures. RUB primarily utilises the learning platform Moodle to facilitate user-friendly e-learning and to supply students with comprehensive and clearly structured information. Tutors in the e-learning team RUBeL (German) provide advice to members of the teaching staff to help them find online services that meet their requirements, to set them up and to use them efficiently.
