University of Applied Sciences in Business and Administration Zurich
Media Training Centre Lucerne

The journalism and media studies institutes and specialized departments of Zurich, Bern, Fribourg and Lugano Universities and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences Winterthur want to jointly set up a digital repository of high-quality teaching and learning materials. These will provide students with an introduction to the subject, and constitute highly effective teaching tools for lecturers in an e-learning environment.

The repository will consist of the following elements: 1. self-study units which introduce users to core areas of the subject and to scientific methods; 2. case studies enabling students to develop their problem-solving abilities; 3. tools for self-assessment and external evaluation which can be used by lecturers for both frontal and online teaching, and facilitate active learning and communication on the part of students; 4. quality assurance tools which help lecturers to make e-learning an enriching and rewarding experience.

The learning materials will be integrated as a compulsory part of the curricula of participating institutions of higher education. The repository is compatible with the Bologna Reform and the European Credit Transfer System ECTS.
