Simulation-based learning environments in university education.

March 24th, 2021

As part of a digital symposium organized by the IPN - COSIMA meets ProSim et al. - 33 experts from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, the TUM School of Education at Technische Hochschule München, as well as Kiel University and the IPN came together on March 22, 2021, to share their research on the use of simulation-based learning environments in higher education and to explore possible collaborations. At the core of the meeting were 13 presentations from different disciplines from the DFG research group COSIMA as well as the BMBF-funded project ProSim. In these lectures, effective scaffolding measures, questions of promoting diagnostic competence, the possibilities of measuring facets of professional knowledge and exam anxiety as well as perspectives of adaptive feedback bots within simulation-based learning environments were presented and intensively discussed by the various disciplinary perspectives (educational psychology, didactics of biology, mathematics and medicine).

The closing discussion addressed overarching questions for research cooperation on the further development of simulation-based learning environments in higher education. The symposium was the prelude to an intensive joint discussion between the scientific locations of Munich and Kiel in the field of simulation-based learning environments in higher education.

The IPN was represented by: Prof. Dr. Ute Harms (head), Julian Fischer, Dr. Johanna Fleckenstein and Dr. Daniel Sommerhoff.
