Admission requirements

To apply for this degree programme, you must have completed at least six theoretical semesters of higher education studies (all subject areas) with an overall grade of 2.5 or better and have generally earned 210 ECTS credits, but at least 180 ECTS credits. If you bring less than 210 ECTS credits with you at the start of your studies, you will need to plan additional time to make up for any missing ECTS credits. In addition, you prove your above-average motivation to study with a letter of motivation.

To participate in the online course units, you must also have your own, fully-fledged terminal (desktop PC or notebook) with a powerful Internet connection, webcam plus headset. Your personal learning location should allow you to take part in the seminars in the virtual classroom without being disturbed.

Elective modules

For completing the elective module, you can choose from a selection of modules from our master's degree programs as well as from the courses offered by the Virtual University of Bavaria, which usefully complement the topic of digital teaching and learning.

 

Master thesis

The master's thesis offers you room for individual in-depth study and can be written in cooperation with a company. Depending on the topic, supervisor and previous education, master's theses can have a descriptive, formative or evaluative character. For example, your master's thesis may involve the (re-)conception and practical implementation of a digital learning offer, the literature/data-based description and analysis of current learning trends, or the evaluation of framework conditions or effects in the use of digital forms of learning.

 

Teaching and testing methods

Since teaching methods and formats are themselves the subject of learning in this programme, different learning designs are used in the modules. These include traditional face-to-face seminars with classical and/or digital media, blended learning scenarios, asynchronous online courses and courses in the virtual classroom. In this way, you experience the effect of different combinations of methods and media and receive role models for your future actions. Depending on the competence objective, project work, oral examinations/presentations or written examinations are used as examination forms.

Study organisation

The respective lecturers of the modules are responsible for the temporal and spatial arrangement of the course offerings. In principle, courses can be taken on all weekdays during the semester. Experience has shown that the virtual parts of the programme result in a comparatively higher degree of spatial and, in part, temporal flexibility in the weekly timetable, which enables students to work alongside their Master's programme (to a manageable extent). However, this Master's programme is not a part-time programme tailored to the needs of employed persons. The self-study and project phases are demanding and time-consuming, so the focus should be on studying rather than working.

Guest: Experts for digital learning at Schwäbisch Hall Training GmbH

"10.000 € for an explanatory film?! For 1,000 learners that's 10 euros per person – that should be possible...". On 09.12.2020, guest speakers Arthur Kohlmai and Sarina Scheuermann from Schwäbisch Hall Training GmbH reported on how they convince their customers, which concepts & tools they use to implement digital learning paths and how they have mastered the Corona Year.

 

First semester kick-off in WS 2020/2021

In compliance with all distance and hygiene regulations, the study programme team is pleased to welcome a new group of students to the Ansbach campus on 1 October 2020. 12 first-year students* get to know each other personally, make first contacts and lay the foundation for a successful start to the semester. In addition, we welcome two new lecturers this semester, who will bring even more practice into the teaching: Dr. Katja Dippold-Schenk and Carola Heck-Volz.

 

Website for live online teaching

Prof. Dr. Verena Gerner developed the website www.live-online-lehre.de on the occasion of the Corona situation, where interested teachers can inform themselves about the possibilities of synchronous online teaching. The website contains numerous tips for didactic design in the virtual classroom, descriptions of methods to be activated as well as technical tutorials on frequently used functions in "Zoom" and "Adobe Connect".

 

Study start in summer semester 2020 with digital teaching

On 15.03.2020, a new cohort will begin their MDD master's studies. Due to the discontinuation of classroom teaching due to corona, all courses in this semester will take place in virtual form. Teaching will be offered and carried out in full, so that students will not suffer any disadvantages for their personal progress.

 

Excursion to the "Learntec"

On 29/30.01.2020 the course of studies will undertake an excursion to the leading fair for digital education. We are looking forward to new trends and stimulating discussions.
