Digital Learning Initiative

The call for ap­pli­cay­tions for the Di­gital Learn­ing ini­ti­at­ive aims to provide ex­tra sup­port to WU courses, mod­ules and pro­grams that en­cour­age stu­dents to en­gage in an act­ive learn­ing pro­cess through the use of di­gital me­dia.

The devel­op­ment of such stu­dent-­centered teach­ing and learn­ing con­cepts is in­ten­ded to help stu­dents ac­quire in-depth know­ledge and key trans­versal skills. The goal is to develop and ex­plore me­di­a-­based di­dactic ap­proaches that take into ac­count the teach­ing and learn­ing cul­tures of the re­spect­ive sub­jects and of­fer po­ten­tial for the devel­op­ment of sub­ject-spe­cific teach­ing strategies.
