At the beginning of the current pandemic, colleagues from two German universities analysed critical situations in digital teaching-learning processes from the perspective of lecturers, students, and pupils in higher education and vocational education institutions. We conducted the study in June 2020. We found that the development towards virtual teaching scenarios, which has become a necessity under the current conditions, will also have an enormous impact on teaching and learning processes in the future in terms of didactics tailored to different learning groups and needs in and outside the classroom. In this podcast, I will give a brief summary of the most intriguing results. We will start with a description of the study background and methodology to analyse critical teaching and learning situations. Afterwards, I will present some findings and conclusions. For further information, you can find the reference to this article in the show notes.
