Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Enhancing digital teaching


In the Q-Programme, the bologna.lab develops and tests a wide range of teaching and learning formats which provide students with early access to research work. The programme comprises four core initiatives which offer a wide range of target groups individual formats for independent, research-based studies.




It is the aim of the Q-Programme to provide scope for research-based forms of teaching and learning at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin at Bachelor’s and Master’s level and to promote the individual academic initiative of the students. The letter Q stands here for a creative blank and the possibility to ask your own questions, to query that which is accepted as given, to go in quest of your own solutions and to gain experience and acquire qualifications.

Through research-based learning, students are to be introduced to university research and an inquiring mentality from their Bachelor studies onwards. Students learn to formulate academic questions, to develop a research project corresponding to these questions and to see through this project in a methodical fashion. Ideally, this would mean that they would gain experience of all phases of the research process up to and including publication and a reflective analysis of their results.

The Q-Programme comprises four core initiatives. While the basic idea behind independent, research-based study is the same in all formats, each individual project has a different focus and is aimed at a different target group.
