SHRIMP goes Bildungswissenschaften: Interview mit Dr. Christian Herfter

SHRIMP wird seit 2015 an der Universität Leipzig am Institut für Amerikanistik als Lehr-Lern-Experiment erprobt und evaluiert. Doch der Reader eignet sich auch für den Einsatz in anderen Gebieten der textbasierten Geisteswissenschaften – das dachte sich auch Dr. Christian Herfter vom Institut für Bildungswissenschaften der Uni Leipzig. Im Rahmen eines LiT Shortcut, eines Kurzworkshops für Lehrende an der Uni Leipzig, erfuhr er von SHRIMP und sah sofort das Potenzial für den eigenen Fachbereich.

SHRIMP at Digital Humanities Day Leipzig 2019

On December 02, 2019 we were invited to present SHRIMP at the Digital Humanities Day organized by the Forum Digital Humanities Leipzig (Uni Leipzig), which took place this year at the Grassi Museum. As part of a poster slam, we presented SHRIMP and the current project status - all in just sixty seconds! Visitors who were interested in a more detailed introduction to the project after this little and compact "appetizer" could visit us at a poster exhibition afterwards.

Distribution of learning types in the current semester

Shortly after the start of the semester we want to present you some statistics! Remember the test you had to take before you could use SHRIMP? On the basis of these questions we wanted to find out what type of learner you are in order to customize SHRIMP according to your personal learning needs. Now we have evaluated the test results and determined the exact distribution of learning types in your seminar – interesting to find out how your fellow students prefer to learn, isn't it?

The focus of this year’s event was on the future of higher education (“Zukunft der Lehre”) - a perfect setting for presenting our current project results and plans.
