Digital Teaching in the Curriculum


The continuous improvement of teaching through the development and meaningful use of didactically sound methods of blended learning has a high priority at RWTH.

Initiatives such as the Exploratory Teaching Space and strategic projects in the faculties provide support for lecturers to implement their innovative teaching ideas. Just as important as the development of successful teaching and learning ideas is their sustainable implementation in the curricula, especially with regard to lecturer-independent use. To support this, the "Digital Teaching in the Curriculum" competition was organized for the first time in 2020.

Funding is provided to improve existing digital offerings (Category 1), as well as the development of new digital offerings (Category II). The decisive factor is that all offerings developed with project funds are sustainably integrated into the modules of the degree program.

In the first two calls, a total of 50 projects were supported with a total funding amount of around 2 million euros.

Project proposals for the 3rd call can be submitted via the ERS portal with the approval of the respective deans of studies until June 10, 2022.
