  • Innovative teaching and learning concepts: Innovation plus
    The overall goal of the project is the didactically justified implementation of digital teaching-learning concepts (especially blended learning) in the regular study structure of the interdisciplinary Master's programme in Educational Sciences, in order to innovatively and sustainably change both courses with an introductory character and in-depth seminars. This also includes the further development of forms of examination in which new technologies can be mapped (focus: teaching and examination) as well as the development of basic digital competences and self-learning skills of the students.

  • Competence development among company executives of transformation processes
    In this project, the work of works councils in the context of transformation processes is examined by means of a literature study. The aim of the study is to explore the possibilities and limits of competence development and professionalisation of works council committees and elected representatives. Based on the literature analysis, the current state of research on competence development and professionalisation of works council members in transformation processes will be surveyed. From this, both desiderata in the research landscape and starting points for further research projects will be derived.

  • Work & Qualification 2030. Resources and Strategies for Sustainable Work and Qualification in Innovative Transformation Processes
    The research project examines the transformation of work activities in the automotive industry and the associated qualification requirements using the example of the Volkswagen Group. The project focuses on two central developments: digitalization - i.e. the transformation in the area of products (e.g. autonomous driving) and processes (Industry 4.0) - and the transformation towards electromobility. For the automotive industry, the latter goes hand in hand with a profound change in the structure of the workforce, as knowledge and skills in the field of internal combustion engine technologies are losing relevance and new skills and knowledge stocks have to be developed. Within the framework of case studies, job clusters in the company (manufacturing, logistics, planning, etc.) are examined and, in a further step, new qualification strategies and possibilities are researched and developed.
