Monitor Digitalization 360° – Where do German universities stand?20.03.23
The Hochschulforum Digitalisierung conducted a comprehensive survey on the status of digitalization at German universities. University administrators, faculty, students and support staff were surveyed. The study shows, among other things: Digitization is now a matter for the boss at almost all universities. The technical equipment is rated as sufficient by students and teachers. WLAN coverage remains a weak point at some university locations. Teachers lack time for continuing education, students want a more interactive and multimedia learning experience.
The monitor on the status of digitization in teaching and learning at German universities was designed as a “360-degree survey”. Between mid-June and the end of October 2022, four different target groups – university management (n=74), support (n=127), teaching staff (n=399) and students (n=1,008) – were surveyed on didactic formats, spatial infrastructure, concrete support services through to strategic developments at German universities in order to obtain as holistic a view of the topic as possible. The planned repetition of the survey in about two years will then also allow changes and emerging developments to be identified. The study was conducted by the mmb Institute on behalf of the CHE Centre for Higher Education for the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung.
