R&D within Distance University
The strategic objective of the Swiss Distance University Institute is to strengthen its positioning in the field of Swiss and international university education. Therefore, in addition to teaching, it also concentrates on its own research activities and on practical developments in the field of online learning.
At Distance University, research and development revolve around two central themes. The Swiss Distance University Institute distinguishes itself by focusing its research activities on university-level educational theory, the development of teaching and online learning, not only linking numerous projects specific to them but also inter-faculty and inter-disciplinary projects. What is more, each faculty has its own area of research and development which involves working on various projects with recourse to different methods.
