Aim and content of the project
The aim of the project "CoDiLe - Collaborative Digital Learning" is to create a new international module "Water challenges in a changing world" in the form of a lecture series, which on the one hand takes up the advantages of digitized teaching and on the other hand offers a unique opportunity for individual users to design the Course themselves. The module primarily addresses master’s degrees in the fields of environmental and engineering studies and is created in cooperation with several high-ranking national and international universities. Each of the 16 project partners participates in a video presentation on a topic of their expertise. This guarantees a very high level and at the same time covers a wide range of subject areas, addressing a large number of students. As a result of the digital structure, different learning speeds are becoming less important and equal opportunities are guaranteed.
Each thematic block is self-contained and modular. Didactically, the focus is on “blended learning” with the use of “flipped classrooms” and a combination of asynchronous and synchronous sessions with the respective lecturers. The aim is to interact via online forums and then enter into a discussion with the experts. The range of available topics is more extensive than the required semester performance, which enables students to design the module themselves.
