Course Contents Studium Digitale

What is the content of Studium Digitale?

We start at the very beginning and begin with the question of what exactly digitalization actually means. In the course of the course, studying digital will answer the following questions, for example:

  • What is a computer?
  • What is the difference between data, information and knowledge?
  • What exactly is the difference between a programming language and a language like German or Italian?
  • What exactly is an algorithm?
  • What can artificial intelligence do - today and tomorrow?
  • What do ethics mean in a digital world?

Central contents and applications of digital data processing and technology should be understood. Basic questions in the context of digitalization should be classified and critically reflected upon. Successful completion will result in a solid basic knowledge in the following areas:

  1. Data & Information
  2. Programming & Computational Thinking
  3. Digital Society
  4. Digital studies

At the application level, students should learn to structure digital work and use digital tools meaningfully in their studies. It is about acquiring digital skills that facilitate study and directly affect everyday study. It is about the efficient handling of one's own data (e.g. saving one's own documents) and digital collaboration for working in groups. It is also about sustainability, diversity and inclusion in the context of digitalization.
