Institute for Digital Media Education


The team of the Institute for Educational Governance conceives, organizes and evaluates the teaching of Initial Teacher Education and Continuous Professional Development for digital media education for educators of all school types and all age groups. It accompanies and counsels schools, other educational institutions and thematically corresponding educational networks and educational regions in quality development in media pedagogical, media didactical and information technological questions of teaching, school and personal development.

The team conducts research on media pedagogical and media didactical questions and cooperates regionally, nationally and internationally. It disseminates its research findings and products in the teaching and counselling of the professional community as well as in scientific publications and at congresses in the scientific community. The Institute runs the two practical workshops RadioIgel&IgelTV and the Digital Learning Lab. The Regional Didactic Centre for Computer Sciences is also located here.
