Keynote Lecture | Abstract | Let’s turn back from the common understanding of technology as pure handcraft to a more interdisciplinary perspective of learning in Higher Education: With our keynote we focus first at the general potentials of learning how to do research. Then we will have a closer look to the situation if all described parameters are implemented in universities like ours today. Digital media and online tools, especially social media, are in our core interest by focusing research processes within the target groups (by name students, instructors). What types of media do they use and which concepts of technology could be identified through students’ action? Referring to pedagogical concepts and common practices we will show that inquiry-based learning and research-based teaching by using (social) media is possible, but: There is a need for an interdisciplinary approach from the viewpoint of Higher Education in and with media.
