DigiTaKS* research project

The research and development project „Digitale Schlüsselkompetenzen für Studium und Beruf (DigiTaKS*) – Entwicklung eines Modells zur transformativen digitalen Kompetenzentwicklung Studierender” (Digital key competences for study and work – development of a model for transformative digital competence advancement for students) started in January 2021 and runs through 2024. It is funded by dtec.bw and part of the research cluster OPAL. More information on the project can be found here and on the dtec.bw infopage.

About the project

In order to remain competitive in international transformation processes, the development of digital key competences for work and society must become a cross-cutting task of the entire education system. The aim is to sustainably stimulate digital innovation, which DigiTaKS* addresses at university level – even beyond technology-oriented degree programmes.


Project Concept and Research Design

The DigiTaKS* project uses a longitudinal research design in which different methods of quantitative and qualitative social research are applied in the form of an intervention study to investigate digital competence acquisition processes.

Equipping with the DigiTaKS* notebooks

As part of the research and development project, the student cohorts 2021, 2022 and 2023 at the Faculty GeiSo of the HSU will be equipped with a basic digital package consisting of a notebook with associated software bundle.


Results of the project consist not only in scientific publications, but also in the development of the digital basic package as well as the tool for diagnosis and development of digital competences



Here you will find an overview of all publications that have been produced or are in preparation within the DigiTaKS* project and its wider context.


Conferences & Presentations
