H2D2 Praxis Innovation Lab
didactically and digitally competent teaching and learning
Initial situation

The processes related to the practical phases of the students should be made more transparent. Up to now, the information and contact persons are not to be found in a central place. Teaching-learning formats, within which students can participate in the experience of higher semesters in the sense of peer-to-peer exchange, exist only in rudimentary form. Valuable experiential knowledge thus remains unused. In addition, the reflection of self, social and key qualifications with regard to possible career paths has not been given sufficient importance so far.

Project idea, goals and approach

The PraxisInnovation-Lab works on the interlocking of studies and practice. The Praxis-Innovation platform enables the sharing of knowledge gained from internships, working student activity and other practical phases, as well as low-threshold access to organizational matters and contact persons.

Informative, transparent and reflective: the Practice Innovation Platform

The cross-departmental digital reflection, information and networking platform enables students to participate in the experiences of others, to reflect on their own and to share them (anonymously). It facilitates, among other things by referring to existing offline support structures, to inform oneself transparently about organizational steps and possible fields of work. It also provides students with a transparent overview of open internship positions, thus facilitating their entry into the professional world. Reflection units and (peer) counseling will also enable students to assess their own skills and attitudes toward the (digital) world of work and develop suitable career perspectives.
