Abstract

Based on the seamless learning approach (Wong, 2012), this paper illustrates how media competence can be developed, what didactic design is necessary, and what features this design possesses for teaching media competence at university. The ‘Natural History Museum Berlin project' is considered as an example of this. In this project, during the 2009 summer term, students at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (Germany) in cooperation with the Natural History Museum Berlin (Germany) developed and produced media products (magazine articles, audio and video podcasts) in which they explored and reflected on the topic of knowledge transfer in terms of constructivism in an authentic context. The closeness to research activities at the university, especially in the Department of Continuing Education, is one of the essential aspects.
