Think Tank and Coordination
The objective of the LearnTechNet is to provide technologies in consultation with students and teachers for the University of Basel, to develop sustainable solutions and to ensure their quality. The purpose of this is to create a coordinated and integrated virtual environment and to facilitate diversified learning formats and teaching methods.
To this end, the LearnTechNet partners develop common positions and university-wide recommendations. New developments are tracked and evaluated using a structured trendspotting process. The tool portfolio is coordinated and interfaces are created.
The network partners coordinate their respective operational work, and jointly launch projects of all or individual partner institutions, e.g. to create new tools, IT-based teaching/learning environments and digital teaching/learning opportunities.
