The Hochschulforum Digitalisierung organises annual summer schools for participants from teaching and teaching support institutions. In interactive formats they exchange experiences and learn from and with each other how digitisation of teaching and learning can be designed and promoted in their university. The Summer Schools are characterised by a particularly open atmosphere and intensive exchange among like-minded people.

Collegial consultation: All participants bring a concrete challenge from their teaching or university that they would like to work on at the HFD Summer School. For this purpose, we use the format of collegial counseling: In small groups, the participants consult each other on their "cases" and jointly develop ideas for solutions.
The HFD Summer Schools are also inspired by workshops and lightning talks, in which the participants set their own topics and present good practice examples from their university.
Workshops: In the workshops, participants share their experiences, discuss specific issues, develop ideas and concepts together, produce content or try out new tools.
Lightning Talks: In the Lightning Talks, participants present special projects or share valuable insights and experiences from their work with the other participants. In the Lightning Talks, 15 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. This results in a lightning talk of exactly 5 minutes.
