Study design

As defined by a continuous optimization of the communication and collaboration offer, we execute three studies that build on each other. All finding emerged thereby, we create some value add for science as well as for the further education practice.

Explorative study

In the explorative study, we want to explore, how a learning environment is used by a selected group of lecturers to support each other in solving problems in a media pedagogical context. The explorative study is the first out of three design cycles and therefore it delivers some important experiences as input for the experimental study. According to the plan, the explorative study starts in the beginning of 2021.

Experimental study

In the context of the experimental study, we have lecturers from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) participating in location-specific further education courses with the same content and comparable conditions. After the course we assign each lecturer to one experimental and one control group randomly. While the experimental group is using Microsoft Teams as a learning environment after the course, the control group is on their own to transfer the content of the course into practice. All findings, concerning the correlation of the learning environment and the media pedagogical acquisition of competencies in the second design cycle, emerged from the experimental study, run into the practical study. The experimental study starts in autumn 2021.

Here we provide all informationto you, that are needed for the experimental study.

Practical study

Based on the previous findings, there is a further education course to use Microsoft Teams as a tool for communication and collaboration. This course is part of the overall DHBW´s further education program including the re-optimized learning environment as an integral part. Consequently it is possible to derive context-specific design principals for the further education practice in the third and last design cycle represented in the practical study. Based on the planned timing, the practical study starts in spring 2022.

Here you can find all information that are necessary to execute the practical study.
