Imagine this: During their studies, future teachers and museum educators learn and test how to develop creative and complex digital exercises for students. Students actively engage with history using digital media and acquire research-oriented and digital skills in the process. The Lehr-Lern-Hub (Teaching-Learning-Laboratory) Digital History transfers the approaches of an interlocking of research-oriented school and practice-oriented teacher training as well as digital media and technology competence development, which have been tested so far mainly in the STEM area, to the area of museum and history didactics. The DHLab examines, develops and tests formats to promote both digital and practice-oriented competence of the students as well as the skills for research-oriented teaching in the classroom, for example in the context of school internships, full-day teaching programs or extracurricular learning sites. Prospective teachers learn digital research and mediation methods based on examples, develop tasks for students on this basis, and test and reflect on them. The result is both a pool of digital mediated exercises and teaching offers and a publicly visible 4D knowledge resource based on the students’ contributions. These resources can be used by teachers even after graduation and enable further use in the profession.
