Goals

The Centre for Research in Educational Technology of Danube University Krems will lead WP8 (Quality Assurance) and will especially support WP2 (STEM Formative Digital Assessment Approach) and WP5 (Evaluation of the Pilot Testing Process) with experience in educational technology.

The staff at the Centre for Research in Educational technology will augment the visibility and networking of the project via social media. In this regard, we will support WP6 (dissemination & exploitation) through mass media and articles in community networks.

The Centre for Research in Educational Technology also co-operates with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and is present on a range of national conferences with teachers as the main target group. Therefore, our dissemination and exploitation activities reach a considerable target audience in German speaking countries and beyond.
