The education program aims to use the DIZH network to facilitate innovative developments in teaching, education and digitalization. It should also support DIZH partner institutions in creating a teaching framework that can benefit from the potential offered by digital transformation.
The program supports education initiatives that apply both to academia and the entire spectrum of professions.
To understand today’s society as a whole and to be able to study successfully, you have to understand what “digitalization” is. Therefore, basic digital competencies are needed. The aim of the online lecture Studium Digitale, specially developed by University of Zurich / DSI, is to give students at Bachelor level a first introduction to this broad and complex topic. The four building blocks of Studium Digitale are “Data & Information”, “Programming and Computational Thinking”, “Digital Society” and “Studying Digitally”.
The ZHAW is the first university of applied sciences worldwide to offer freely accessible online courses on the edX online learning platform.
