The LMU supports schools and teachers as they strive to put the opportunities afforded by the digital transformation to good use. The aim of the new competence network digital:learning is to apply scientific insights in practice. To this end, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding four competence centers at which LMU is represented across a total of six collaborative projects. Academics from eight LMU teacher training disciplines – psychology, education, mathematics teaching methodologies, biology, physics, geography, and teaching methodologies for English and German – are involved in these projects.
“Our success in raising third-party funding across disciplinary boundaries bears outstanding testimony to LMU’s teacher training credentials – especially in the context of such topical and socially relevant issues as digitalization,” says Professor Oliver Jahraus, Vice President for Study and Teaching at LMU. “We are delighted to see LMU playing a key role in putting important research findings into practice and, in so doing, charting a course toward the digital transformation of teacher training and of our schools.”
