Responding to the invitation of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung – BMBF), a nationwide expert group discussed key challenges in the area of digitization in teacher education in the summer of 2018. Against this background, based on further scientific findings and with regard to the financial conditions, it was considered what the corresponding funding line within the program “Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung” could look like. The group also discussed the requirements for the applications in the sense of future-oriented overall concepts. In this respect, the article presents an in-depth background paper on the funding guidelines of the BMBF in the “Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung” with a focus on digitization and offers perspectives for future developments.
