The ubiquity of the digital in research and society raises important questions concerning the competences and skills to be conveyed to future generations by the university. Currently, the first born-digital generation is entering the universities. Students of this generation are interacting with everyday technology in a very casual way, yet, they are just as new to the utility of digital technologies in their course of studies, as they are unfamiliar with their newly chosen subjects of study and their contents.

University teaching can nowadays build upon the openness and curiosity of this generation concerning digital technology. At the same time, it is facing the challenge of aligning the possibilities offered by digital technology with the requirements of philological and cultural studies aspects of the courses of study in order to enable students to critically engage with said technologies in an academic context. It is important that the teaching of digital technology is integrated into the study of language, literature and culture in order to convey to students its relevance in research, teaching and the workplace. University education must thus prepare aspiring academics and scientists as well as teachers for work, life and research in a digital society and make them aware of the methodological and theoretical implications.

Digital technology poses opportunities and challenges for the development of university teaching; these are frequently taken up in research-oriented teaching formats. Our workshop session “The Digital in Research-Oriented Teaching: Interdisciplinary Exchange” invites participants to share their concepts and experiences from research-oriented teaching formats at Anglistentag 2019 in Leipzig. The workshop is comprised of poster presentations optionally including demos of websites, teaching materials and software. The workshop, furthermore, includes a panel discussion to spark exchange about experiences and challenges and offers a forum for discussion on the role of the digital in teaching to a wider plenum.
