E-learning and media-supported approach
The ZHAW places emphasis on e-learning and blended learning in its approach to teaching, studying and examinations. Students have access to a variety of tools, from virtual classrooms to class Wikis, which are designed to facilitate virtual learning.
Lecturers at the ZHAW know the possibilities inherent in e-learning and blended learning, and they make use of these in their teaching. Media-supported teaching and learning is an integral component of studying at the ZHAW. Apart from the standard ZHAW tools, students have access to a wide range of alternative tools which promote productive learning.
Not least, e-learning gives students greater flexibility with regard to when and where they study. At the beginning of their programme, they are given an introduction to the ZHAW e-learning environment. In addition, members of the Blended Learning unit are available to both students and teaching staff for individual consulting and/or coaching at any time.
As part of their continuing professional development, our lecturers focus on extending their knowledge of e-learning and blended learning approaches and tools.
