In the context of learning and teaching with digital media, approaches to the conception, development and evaluation of innovative teaching-learning designs from an international, organizational and individual perspective are the focus of recent developments in educational technology.

|The PhD programme aims to critically observe and accompany the many-voiced network of ideas and expectations, of hopes and fears, including the corresponding (political) programmes and measures, which revolves around the concept, techniques, and practices of digitalisation. To this end, it reflects, informed by the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences, on society’s approach to digitalisation and, in an interdisciplinary dialogue, pursues the questions, 1. how, under what conditions, and in which social areas (politics, education, economy, health care, etc.) which blueprints of a digital future will emerge, 2. how these drafts take shape, gain acceptance, or fade away unheard in different genres and media (in party programmes, academic expertise, futurology, science fiction, etc.), 3. what influence do drafts of a digital future have on the present, e.g. in processes of political decision-making, in educational initiatives, or in measures for the solution, channelling, and defence of problems and crises that have been diagnosed and prognostically anticipated in the present|| |
