What Education and Research currently deal with

Digitalization and technological progress do not stop at the university and research landscape. The fields of research and education are facing new challenges, which at the same time open up new educational strategies and potential for you. A great opportunity that you should take advantage of! But what needs to be considered? Which areas are affected and are the resources sufficient?

In our whitepaper, you will find out where the greatest challenges in research and education are located, which strategies can be used to overcome them, and how business process management can support you in the long term.


  1. Development in education: blended learning and collaboration
    The higher education sector has to fit into the digital world as well. Almost 86 % of teachers at universities now enable digital exams. At the same time, the process is viewed by stakeholders as rather skeptical. Above all, legal certainty and functioning technology are the most frequently cited problems. In the future, universities will have to weigh up the high cost of face-to-face examinations against digital examinations, which are perceived as rather insecure. But in the long term, a strategy for university teaching adapted to the digitalized world should be established overall, with hybrid and complementary teaching formats and offerings. The far-reaching digitalization of lectures has the potential to change university education in the long term: For many universities, whose buildings are characterized by large lecture halls that take up a lot of space, there are opportunities for redesigning learning spaces. With digital formats, it is possible to...

Here, documents are organized thematically so that they can be found quickly and intuitively by those involved. This overcomes the often still chaotic filing of documents and forms at universities. Above all, the university as a holistic organization must turn its attention to the quality as well as efficiency of the existing structures and specifically modernize the work processes. Many processes are already predefined by legislation, accreditation rules and the Bologna process to which universities are subject. But are they also documented and comprehensible to everyone? With the introduction of process management, it is possible to...
  3. Development in research: formation of alliances and clusters
    In line with the recommendation of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Application Orientation in Research, Position Paper Drs. 8289-20) to strengthen the application orientation in research, supraregional teaching alliances and clusters should be promoted. This should involve not only universities, but also companies and research institutions. Cooperation should include the development and sharing of didactic formats as well; knowledge and resources should be developed and shared. The key here is joint development and effective coordination so that economies of scale can be exploited. Here, too, the above-mentioned point of IT unification as well as exchange platform is an essential tool for a successful formation of alliances and clusters. Especially the cooperation of...
