Why we are Participating in the Project
One of ATiT’s core interests lies in supporting learning organisations including Universities make the transition from traditional learning paradigms to ones which better meet the needs and realities of todays’ students by being more engaging, flexible, appropriate and effective. Digital tools and technologies can play an important role in such an evolution and are at the heart of much of what we do in terms of training, production and consultancy. In EduHack ATiT sees an opportunity to share their experience, build their knowledge, extend the network and contribute to the establishment of a very necessary network of practitioner guides who can help European universities make the transition to a more innovative learning offer.
