eDU (Unit for Digitalisation and Education) works to address issues related to learning, teaching and assessment in our digital world. We focus primarily on development and we work in close dialogue with USN’s teaching community.

eDU offers its specialist skills and expertise in learning to staff at USN in our digital world. Fundamentally, we address issues related to university pedagogy – in other words, ‘learning at university level’. Our aim is to focus on how teaching can be carried out effectively in a variety of contexts.
eDU operates with so-called hybrid expertise. Our 18 employees have teaching experience, and high levels of pedagogical awareness and digital competence. We are research-oriented and many of our employees have scientific backgrounds (PhD or equivalent).

  • We offer advice on issues related to learning, teaching and assessment, and support all staff at USN in their efforts to develop carefully prepared learning designs.
  • We initiate development projects and monitor new trends emerging in the sector. Our aim is to focus on trends and methods, and to highlight opportunities and pitfalls.
  • We offer media production for teaching purposes and ensure the efficient functioning of USN’s learning platforms.
  • We try to act as bridge-builders between all staff communities at USN and to promote experience sharing, so that the results of quality education projects at all scales can be shared and disseminated.
  • We also assist professional managers to address strategic issues linked to the development of quality education, such as by contributing to study programmes.

eDU is here for you, and we learn something new every day. So, if you think that we can help you with an idea or a specific issue, do not hesitate to get in touch for a pleasant chat.
