Ideas Competition “Studienbezogene Verstärkung der Exzellenzstrategie”

With the ideas competition “Studienbezogene Verstärkung der Exzellenzstrategie” (study-related reinforcement of the excellence strategy), TUM promotes initiatives in the area of study and teaching that aim to advance the use of digital forms of teaching, learning, and examining at TUM as well as to develop innovative transdisciplinary teaching formats.

Competition 2021

The current call for proposals for the ideas competition “Studienbezogene Verstärkung der Exzellenzstrategie” aims to promote digital and project-based forms of teaching, learning and examining.

With outstanding commitment and creativity from all lecturers, staff and students, TUM has continued to advance digital teaching. The experience gained shows the potential of the new methods and will further impact our teaching in the future.

We want to continue shaping this future through the ideas competition, while also meeting the current challenges.

The ideas competition 2021/22 thus aims to promote initiatives in the area of study and teaching for the use of digital and project-based forms of teaching, learning and examining at TUM.

Applications can be submitted in the following two funding lines until 10.09.2021:

At TUM, in-person teaching is supplemented by a variety of formats for digital teaching and learning. Our experience with these digital formats will continue to have a lasting impact on teaching in the future. Not only in times of hybrid and flex semesters, the formats can be used in a linked way, resulting in a balance of new and conventional in-person formats with new interaction of instructors and students on site, combined with offerings in virtual space.

Electronic exams, which are very useful in pandemic times, will also promote more dynamic planning for studies abroad and will benefit, for example, exchange students, full-time international students, and special groups of people who cannot be on campus for other reasons. E-examination formats can also help expand the ways in which international applicants can determine their suitability for studies.

Do you have ideas on how to develop introduced digital teaching in existing courses? Which formats are particularly effective and how they can become best practice? Where special technical equipment could provide an additional boost? How to promote the competence development of students and teaching staff in the field of digital teaching? How to promote student support and advising in the digital space? How digital teaching can strengthen international collaborations? And how we can also transfer our exams into the digital world and use them to assess competencies?

The project weeks are intended to create new forms of interdisciplinary, project-based teaching and learning. For this purpose, concepts are sought as to how project-based teaching can promote the acquisition of competencies and strengthen interdisciplinary cooperation. Furthermore, project-based teaching can help to teach the lively discussed “21st Century Skills” and to link them with subject-specific knowledge. The new formats can also prepare students to work productively in heterogeneous teams, to deal proactively with fuzzy questions, or to shed light on the intertwining of technical developments with ethical aspects.

Even before the introduction of the project weeks in the summer semester of 2023, initial initiatives are to be promoted, the results of which can support teachers and students in the pilot phase.

Do you have ideas with which materials, methods or processes the formats described above can be supported and would like to prepare these “tools” for larger user groups and make them accessible? You would like to experiment with new forms of teaching cooperation or further develop existing course formats for the project weeks?

Eligible to apply are departments/schools, professorships, central service institutions (for example ProLehre | Media and Didactics, IT Service Center, University Library, TUM Language Center, TUM Center for Study and Teaching) and student representatives.

Multiple applications per unit are possible. However, applications must be submitted collectively via the Dean of Studies or the heads of the service institutions.

Applications must be submitted electronically to Frauke Winkel at the TUM Center for Study and Teaching by 10.09.2021.

The earliest start date for individual projects is expected to be 01.11.2021 and thus still in the winter semester 2021/22. A later project start is possible. The term ends no later than 31.12.2023. There is no minimum term for individual projects.

For the years 2021 to 2023, approximately 2.5 million euros are expected to be available throughout TUM from tuition substituion funds for the two funding lines.

For formal questions regarding the application, please refer to the application templates and the budget.

If you have any questions about the call for proposals, please contact Frauke Winkel.

Competition 2020

With the funding lines “Virtual Labs”, “Digital Teaching and Examination Formats” and “Student Learning”, the call for proposals in 2020 aimed in particular to promote the use of digital forms of learning, teaching and examination.

The following projects were funded in the individual categories:

Virtual Labs

TUM Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stephan Freudenstein

With the help of modern camera technology, the teaching of the importance of empirical findings for model building in civil engineering is to be optimized. In a Virtual Lab, for example, optical 3D verfomation measurements can be used for research and teaching. The aim is to give students an intensive insight into the experimental design and execution as well as the result analysis based on it.

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Munich School of BioEngineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Werner Hemmert

In this project, a measurement technology practical course is set up that can be carried out independently by the students at home. With minimal effort, electronic circuits can be set up and characterized metrologically with an audio interface and evaluated on the PC. The students can learn basic principles of measurement technology by means of practical experiments. By setting up their own physical experiments, learning content can be experienced directly.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Birgit Vogel-Heuser, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfram Volk, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael F. Zäh

A full-scale digital twin of a real demonstrator should, for example, make motion sequences in gears visible or offer possibilities for plant programming. Via a Moodle interface, students are provided with a digital image of a subsystem of the project-based demonstrator plant, in the form of an “urban ropeway plant”. Through the shared digital image, learning outcomes are better systematically linked.

TUM School of MEdicine, TUM MEC: Prof. Dr. Thomas Misgeld, Prof. Dr. Helmuth Adelsberger, Michael Brunnhuber

To enable hands-on learning experiences also with digital distance learning, an online home lab course for practical modules of the degree program Biomedical Neuroscience is developed. This will use a combination of online teaching, virtual labs and home experimentation kits (home lab kits). Home experiment kits allow students to conduct small experiments from home, thus supporting the teaching of practical experience and skills.

ProLehre | Media und Didactics: Dr. Andreas Fleischmann

ProLehre | Media und Didacticwill provide expertise for digital lab didactics university-wide and support teachers in the didactic conception and technical implementation of virtual labs and remote labs.

Digital Teaching and Examination Formats

TUM Center for Study and Teaching: Dr. Cornelia Gotterbarm

In the pandemic-related very short-term conversion of lectures to digital teaching in the summer semester 2020, student assistants, who are trained in the eScout Academy at ProLehre | Media and Didactics, support the lecturers in the creation of teaching videos as well as in the implementation of digital teaching. However, since not every professor has his/her own assistants or can use them for digital teaching, the project “E-Scouts to strengthen digital teaching” provides centralized, low-threshold funding support for professors from TUM at the request of the department.

TUM Deparetment of Chemistry: Prof. Dr. Fritz E. Kühn

For the project, chemical experiments and facts are documented on film and made plausible, which are of interest and relevance for both studies and society. To this end, a pilot project will first be created based on basic teaching content. In addition, digital "learning games" (comparable to an app) will be designed to prepare students for exams.

TUM School of Governance: Prof. Dr. Stefan Wurster, Dr. Markus Siewert

The aim of the project is to design and implement an interdisciplinary, digital teaching-learning unit that addresses the interplay between sustainable development and digital transformation at universities. The teaching-learning unit includes, among other things, online lectures, interactive formats, and seminars that address the opportunities and risks of digitization for sustainable development from both a theoretical and practical perspective. Among other things, concrete projects are to be developed together with the students that deal with the design of a digital sustainability transformation of, by and for TUM.

Seidl, Prof.  A. Borrmann, Prof. S. Hofer, Dr. F. Reinhold

Knowledge in the field of software engineering is also becoming increasingly important for engineers. For the learning of the necessary abstraction ability, which is necessary for programming languages and modeling tasks, the individual feedback is an important factor for the learning success of the students. A concept is to be developed that enables individualized and interactive feedback for the students also in online teaching, as well as taking into account teaching/learning psychological aspects.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Birgit Vogel-Heuser

A concept is being developed for modules of the Institute of Automation and Information Systems, the Institute of Machine Elements and the Chair of Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics, which combines formats of online teaching and face-to-face teaching into a common, hybrid teaching concept and takes particular account of study achievements in the form of examinations during the semester. The format is to be tested in 2020 and made available to TUM as best practice.

TUM School of Medicine, TUM MEC: Prof. Dr. Marjo Wijnen-Meijer, Dr. med. Christopher Holzmann-Littig, Prof. Dr. med. Pascal Berberat

A digital toolbox is being developed in order to create a valid digital offering for the specific medical learning format of clinical decision-making. An external software is used as a template, which can be filled in independently by lecturers with patient cases from everyday clinical practice. On the basis of the digital cases and on the basis of real anamnesis discussions, findings and images, the students learn diagnostic paths and decisions linked with background knowledge about the respective clinical pictures. In parallel, a corresponding training program for lecturers is being developed and a didactic concept for the flexible integration of digital formats in teaching is being worked out.

TUM School of Medicine: PD Dr. Friederike Schmidt-Graf, Dr. Henrik Heitmann, Prof. B. Hemmer

The applicability and effectiveness of E-learning with a flipped classroom concept will be investigated in a practice-based course, the bedside course in neurology. Based on the findings, the flipped classroom concept will be further developed for practice-based teaching formats. In particular, this should optimize the ratio of theory to practice on face-to-face course days.

ProLehre | Media and Didactics: Dr. Andreas Fleischmann

Electronic remote examinations offer an alternative to face-to-face examinations. Online proctored exams play a central role in this. In online-supervised remote examinations, the examination takes place on the computer and is supervised via the Proctorio software.The use of Proctorio is initially planned for the summer semester 2020 and the winter semester 2020/2021.

ProLehre | Media und Didactics: Dr. Andreas Fleischmann

The topic of digital examinations is becoming increasingly important, and at ProLehre | Media and Didactics support for this topic is therefore to be expanded in order to be able to offer advice and support for digital examination formats.

Student Learning

TUM Center for Study and Teaching: Andrea Kick

Virtual seminars for the development of suitable learning strategies are offered to support students in times of online teaching, especially with challenges of virtual learning. The focus of the "Studying Successfully" seminar offerings is particularly on promoting students' self-management.

The project "How to ... train your medical skills at home!" aims to offer medical students the opportunity to interactively train their clinical-practical skills within peer groups, even from home. For this purpose, a digital platform is being designed that contains e-learning units and practical exercises, as well as providing an opportunity for interactive exchange.

 

TUM School of Medicine, TUM MEC, Student Council of the TUM School of Medicine: Johannes Reifenrath, Theresa Wilhelm, Nick Seiferth; Prof. Dr. Marjo Wijnen-Meijer

Lecture-based student tutorials in the form of Integrated Clinical Case Discussions (ICCD) will be designed, i.e. peer-moderated clinical case discussions will be combined with clinical knowledge excercises. Medical students work through a patient case in self-study using digital tools. Moderated by a student tutor, these cases are then presented (Clinical Case Discussion) and related to important differential diagnoses (Clinical Knowledge Sex Courses), fostering physician decision-making skills, clinical action automatisms, and social interaction.

In the form of a 36-hour event, a TUMMEC OPEN hackathon will take place for students, lecturers and employees in medicine. The hackathon will focus on the challenges, circumstances and potential solutions for digital studies in the medical environment. Creative team processes will be used to initiate ideas and approaches to solutions, which will be followed up in an innovation lab.

Beport about the first hackathon

ProLehre | Media und Didactics: Dr. Andreas Fleischmann

Based on the E-Scout Academy of ProLehre | Media and Didactics, students are to be trained as "Student Information Officers". Student Information Officers are to accompany the digitization of university teaching at the student level and bring the student perspective into the discourse on the further development of digital teaching.

TUM School of Management, Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM): Prof. Isabell Welpe

The project supports instructors and students at TUM in transforming practical courses into digitally adapted formats. The goal is to transform the university into a digital meeting place for students. A comprehensive best-practice catalog for planning and implementing courses is being created. The catalog will be used to facilitate a high level of interaction between students. Train-the-trainer workshops for instructors will be designed and conducted for the direct exchange of best practices.

TUM School of Life Sciences: Prof. Dr. Michael Suda, Dr. Anika Gaggermeier

In order to make online teaching attractive and exciting in the field of forest and environmental policy, scenes with different actors, statements and cabaret interludes are professionally recorded by TUM's ProLehre film team and converted into formats suitable for teaching. Based on this, different questions are formulated, which then provide the basis for discussions, individual exercises and group work. In addition, current research results are presented in an appealing form via videos. The cinematic presentations are rounded off with humorous scenes so that laughter remains possible online.

Competition 2019

In 2019, the funding lines were "Department-spanning Modules", "Plug-in Modules" and "Spirit". A particular focus of the funding was on the development of innovative cross-faculty and transdisciplinary formats.

The following projects were funded in the individual categories:

Department-spanning Modules

TUM Department of Architecture: Mark Michaeli, Prof. Dipl.-Arch. ETH SIA; Werner Lang, Prof. Dr.-lng., M.Arch.II (UCLA)

The future of urban planning requires a networking of different disciplines. The project focuses on the development of an interdisciplinary lecture series (combined with a seminar), in which lecturers from different disciplines present their interfaces on the topic of the city, and urban issues such as the future of mobility and climate-friendly living environments are considered.

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Dr. Gordon Cheng, Prof. Dr. Sabine Maasen, Benjamin Lipp, Nicolas Berberich

The goal of the project is to create a department-spanning module that introduces students to Human.Centered (Neuro-) Engineering based on a concrete project. Together with people with physical disabilities (so-called pilots), students will develop assistance systems such as neuroprostheses and brain-computer interfaces in mixed teams, with which the pilots should be able to perform everyday tasks such as cutting bread. Engineering students and MCTS students will participate in the module.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Klaus Bengler, Prof. Dr. Georg Schmidt

In human-technology research, feedback from future users is increasingly generated by subject studies. Ethical principles and guidelines must be observed in this context. In a 2-day block seminar, students are taught the basics of basic ethical issues and application areas in the engineering sciences. Ethical principles in data collection with human subjects will be explained and the preparation of an application for ethical approval for submission to the ethics committee will be practiced using a practical example.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Klaus Bengler

The aim of the project study is to familiarize students from a wide range of disciplines with the fundamentals as well as the application of human-centered development. Through the project, students should gain experience with agile and creative working methods and working in interdisciplinary teams. In the teams, a concrete solution for a future-oriented topic is to be developed together.

Report about the project

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: PDAV Working Group (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Birgit Vogel-Heuser, Prof. Dr. Markus Zimmermann, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael F. Zäh, Dr. Birgit Spielmann, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfram Volk, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Dipl.-Ing. Tim C. Lüth)

A complex mechanical engineering system in the form of an "urban ropeway system" is anchored in the basic studies in mechanical engineering. The system accompanies the basic studies as a common thread and links the courses with each other. The "urban ropeway system" consists of different modules on which the students experience the interaction of mechanical and electr(on)ic components, sensors, software and control devices. In addition, there is plenty of scope for demonstrating and applying production and product development methods. Students work on the machine subsystems (hardware and software) in subtasks during the course of their studies and exchange ideas across semester boundaries. The networking of the modules in the basic studies, which can be experienced by the students, aims to increase the employability of graduates of the bachelor's program in mechanical engineering, especially for the challenges of Industry 4.0.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Dirk Weuster-Botz

A digital project module is to be set up for master's students in Molecular Biotechnology (TUM School of Life Sciences in Weihenstephan), Chemical Biotechnology (Straubing Campus) and Industrial Biotechnology (Munich School of Engineering, Garching). The module is to start with a team-finding workshop lasting several days, followed by digital project work in mixed student teams. Interdisciplinary topics are to be worked on by the students in virtual teamwork using internet-based methods for joint authoring and editing of documents.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Prof. Klaus Bengler, Prof. Dr. Eugenia da Conceição-Heldt

Within the framework of a seminar, students from different departments are to deal intensively with aspects of interdisciplinarity and reflect on them. An arc is to be drawn between theory, practice and methods of interdisciplinarity.

TUM Department of Mathematics: Prof. Dr. Gabriele Chiogna, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Disse, Prof. Dr. Barbara Wohlmuth

An interdisciplinary module is designed to provide students with skills in uncertainty quantification, with a particular focus on problems in hydrology. Interdisciplinary student teams work on a problem of practical relevance in the module.

Plug-in Modules

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Diepold

The plug-in module is intended to teach fundamentals and tools from the field of linear algebra. These are to be deepened by practical programming knowledge in the application field "Machine Learning". The module is aimed at students of non-technical subjects and aims to promote connectivity to more advanced technical modules and technical subjects.

Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS): Prof. Dr. Christian Djeffal

A success factor for technology development projects in public and commercial contexts is the confident handling of legal requirements. In many areas, new technologies encounter a highly regulated environment, so that solutions often have to be developed in interdisciplinary teams. Through the plug-in module, students should be able to understand the connections between law and technology and acquire key legal skills based on concrete examples. Finally, the acquired knowledge is to be processed in a knowledge platform, which contains in particular positive examples of legally compliant technology design.

Spirit

TUM Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering: Dr.-Ing. Francesca Taddei, Quirin Aumann, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Müller

Classic project work at the Chair of Structural Mechanics is to be expanded to include digital components for collaborative, peer-based learning. Tools such as a wiki or the peer review process integrated in Moodle will be used to promote professional exchange between project groups and uncover synergies. Students can contribute project results to the wiki, creating a constantly growing knowledge base.

TUM Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering: Univ. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Konrad Nübel

The lecture series of construction process management is to be redesigned according to the principle of the flipped classroom concept. To this end, the lecture content will be successively transferred to online formats. Different online concepts will be used for different content, such as classic lecture sections but also interviews, short presentations or content films such as the video "Civil Vision 2030", the video "Bauen ist Teamwork" or the video "Erfolgreiches Projektmanagement". In the classroom sessions, interactive formats and case studies are then used to bring complex problems from the real world of construction management into the lecture hall for discussion. Methods such as peer instruction, group work and role plays are used in this format.

TUM School of Education: Dr. Johannes Krugel

The goal of the project is to improve the starting conditions for first-year students in STEM degree programs who begin their studies without (school) knowledge of computer science. With the help of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), knowledge in the field of object-oriented programming can be learned and deepened. The course is based in particular on numerous interactive exercises and programming tasks with automatic, didactically sound feedback.

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Dr.sc.tech. Gerhard Kramer

Two e-learning projects of the Institute for Communications Engineering are to be (further) developed: On the one hand, a website on the topic of error-correcting codes (pretty-good-codes.org) is to be further developed. On the other hand, the virtual course LNTwww is to be further developed and adapted.

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Dr.-lng. Georg Sigl

Courses on information security will be enriched and developed with online programming assignments and video podcasts. Online programming assignments will train students' practical skills in implementing secure systems. Video podcasts provide students with sample solutions and assistance for practical tasks, which can be used very well for self-study and thus support the individual learning progress of students. In order to address the sometimes very different prior knowledge of the students, both detailed introductions to each topic and videos with more in-depth content are offered for those who are particularly interested.

TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Kellerer

The "Broadband Communication Networks" module is being converted into a blended learning format. In the resulting new module "Data Networking", video podcasts are used to explain aspects of mobile communication and networking in the everyday world that can be experienced in real life in short episodes. The podcasts are used to introduce students to the next teaching unit. Existing prior knowledge and everyday experiences are thus activated. Specially developed tasks link the concrete contents of the module to the learning situation.

TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering: Moritz Sattler, Prof. Daniel Rixen

In order to complement the equipment of the TUM with an innovative way of teaching video recording, a LightBoard is provided. A LightBoard is a modern glass board, which combines advantages of the traditional blackboard and presentation. The lecturers can build up connections step by step on the glass board while always looking in the direction of the camera, i.e. establishing eye contact with the viewers. The idea of the LightBoard thus makes use of possibilities that are not possible in face-to-face events, and is therefore particularly well suited to shooting high-quality videos for digital teaching in a time-efficient and cost-effective manner.

This project creates opportunities to combine digital teaching and on-site support with the greatest possible added value. New content is taught in a specially developed learning platform using a continuous sequence of short videos and interactive tasks - LearningFlow. The time gained by the instructors makes it possible to intensify on-site supervision. Here, discussions in small groups and one-on-one meetings are designed to support learners individually. Due to its simple design, the learning platform should not distract from the content, supports the LearningFlow teaching method and offers an interactive task type in which learners can build mathematical expressions from elements themselves.
