Since e-learning will continue to play an important role after the coronavirus crisis, a substantial expansion is necessary. In order to offer high-quality online courses and to support the students in developing their future skills, the University of Mannheim needs a better teaching and service infrastructure.
This includes the further development of teaching and learning methods and the expansion of course offerings in digital and data literacy, the development of self-study skills, design thinking and much more.
Therefore, a “Center for the Digitalization of Teaching” is to be established which will directly support teachers in the digitization of their teaching and include, for example, didactic advice, support in media design and production, as well as continuing education in instructional design. In order to provide the center with the best possible equipment and to keep increasing the competitive advantages of the University of Mannheim, an additional financial support is necessary. 500,000 euros are needed for technical equipment and personnel.
The University of Mannheim Foundation welcomes your support to help expand e-learning. 100 euros, 500 euros, 1,000 euros or more – any amount will help advance digitalization!
