With the program “Unseren Hochschulen” the Claussen-Simon Foundation and the Hamburg Higher Education Authority aim at promoting excellent professors and innovative teaching activities as well as increasing the collaboration between students and professors. We have participated in this program with M-Lab (in German), our lighthouse teaching project for mobile app development. Out of 300 student recommendations for professors and teaching events we have been selected among the top 10 and nominated as a candidate to win the teaching price. The three winners will be announced in October 2015 and will receive a total award of 200.000 Euro to realize their teaching projects and concepts. We are very grateful for our students, who have nominated us for this competition and have voted for our project proposal.
We proudly announce that our group will contribute to the development of the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU) – an innovative higher-education initiative of Hamburg.
Initiated by Hamburg’s First Mayor Olaf Scholz and its Senate Chancellery, the HOOU project is a cooperation between the federal state government, the authority of science and research (BWF), Multimedia Kontor Hamburg (MMKH), and the six public universities in our city-state. The overall goals are to foster the digitization of the higher education, to open-up knowledge sharing and educational resources, and to provide an innovative, scalable and usable online platform for teaching and learning across the universities. HOOU will target not only university students but also everyone interested in education and knowledge. Within this project, MOBIS is researching and developing innovative approaches such as “Learning Analytics and Recommendation”, “Problem- and Project- based learning”, “Mobile Learning” and “Continuous Quality Assurance”.
