This paper presents a didactical approach to combine relevant elements of discovery learning and the project method in courses that include semester work and written examinations. This approach comprises three promising aspects: it increases student motivation, strengthens their self-efficacy and eases the teachers' task to integrate new technologies into their courses. The concept has been evaluated to verify the assumption that it can be applied to teaching new technologies. The course evaluation equally shows that students' self-efficacy can be strengthens by the described course design.
