The project TEACH4EDU4 includes higher education institutions joined in the partnership to enable its teachers and students a unique exercise in acquiring new skills and new teaching methods in line with the developments in Industry 4.0. Project activities are designed to enable the creation of the environment for implementation of new learning and teaching approaches in computer science and related disciplines.

The project will result in a series of tangible and intangible results: Catalogue of new forms of teaching, learning and assessment in CS in Edu 4.0 and related teachers’ skills and competences, Learning design models, Collaborative Teaching Methods for Joint Creative Classrooms, Guidebook on the use of learning data to create evidence-based learning design decisions and Partnership Manifesto - Transferability of the developed models.

Additionally, we believe that only by close cooperation with the industry we can deliver quality results. Therefore, our associated partners, namely Technology Park Varaždin, Technology Innovation Centre Medimurje, Croatian Information Technology Association, European Distance and E-Learning Network (Hungary) and Ringier Axel Springer (Slovakia) will support the development of intellectual outputs, providing valuable inputs in the development phase but as well supporting the provision of courses and contributing to the dissemination of project results.

The project should make an impact on 3 levels: student, lecturers, institutional. The project coordinator is Assoc. Prof. Igor Balaban from FOI UNIZG.
