Our directors and the management committee also regularly assign final theses to students on topics that drive us forward as an institute. Please get in touchif you would be interested in writing your final thesis with us.
In addition, we are the first point of call for lecturers at Kempten University of Applied Sciences when it comes to using new media in teaching. We train and support our professors, staff, lecturers and student assistants in the use of multimedia learning elements.
In practice, the Institute for Digital Transformation in Work, Education and Society carries out projects providing consultancy services, designing and implementing digital education. The aim is to support and advance continuing education for renowned business enterprises. Our projects are therefore always conducted in close cooperation with the education managers and internal experts at these companies.
We also train the staff responsible for training in companies, from staff development officers to managers and the trainers themselves.
As an institute, we are committed to conducting research projects, further developing digital teaching and learning formats, and publishing our findings. To this end, we participate, for example, in conferences on the subject of innovative knowledge and human resource management. One of the IDT’s primary goals is to promote applied research in the field of innovative and digital teaching.
Researching and developing digital and media-supported teaching and learning formats includes, for example, the topics:
For companies, we develop product-specific and other forms of training (e.g. stakeholder, project management) using interactive web-based training, animated video sequences, interviews with in-house experts and interactive quiz units. Our fields of activity include:
Within the framework of third-party funded projects, we regularly work together with renowned companies. Would you be interested in joining forces with us? Please get in touch.
“Digital and Regional” is a joint initiative between the Bavarian Swabian universities of applied sciences. In cooperation with Augsburg and Neu-Ulm Universities of Applied Sciences, we assist lecturers in designing and creating innovative teaching/learning concepts for the bachelor’s degree programme in SYSTEMS ENGINEERING (Bachelor of Engineering).
We collaborate closely with the Virtual University of Bavaria (“vhb”). Within this framework, various projects are running in different contexts – from developing individual online elements and supporting teachers at Kempten UAS (SMART vhb) and developing and supporting semester-long online courses for students from all over Bavaria (CLASSIC vhb), through to developing massive open online courses under the auspices of the OPEN vhb project. For example, we offer courses on Leadership in the digital age.
