E-Learning Basics


This workshop serves as an introduction into teaching with the learning management system ILIAS.
To fully comprehend the scope of possibilities this platform has to offer, you will at first reflect your own teaching in terms of learning objectives and activities.

Having identified the main learning goals of your courses, you will then gather a basic understanding of the purposes of widely used digital tools and their didactic potential in accordance with the various phases of teaching and learning.
Ideally, every participant will have the chance to test and try out as many tools as possible and reflect on their didactic and methodical usage.
We will further dive into the possibilities of supporting collaborative work and aesthetic course design using the learning management system.

In a virtual follow-up session, we will then examine the results of your group work and explore the didactic advantages of the tools in question.
Together we will find ways to implement your ideas into your future teaching.
In order to use this time as effectively as possible, please reserve some time in the self-learning phase in between our meetings.
