The project aims to equip two classrooms with interactive educational equipment to facilitate cutting-edge teaching approaches and foster a rich variety of educational methods in programs offered by the JKU Business School. The project will support internationalization for both students and faculty by providing state-of-the-art video conferencing and communication tools. We will select the configuration for the equipment to be tested based on information collected by both sides of the classroom in regard to communication, i.e. students and faculty. Measured among students and faculty,. the test will result in a conscientious evaluation of just how technical classroom equipment impacts perceived teaching quality.
By comparing perceived educational quality before and after updating the equipment, university management and the JKU Business School dean team will be better informed in regard to more effective choices when it comes to future investment in technical educational equipment that will better aid in making in-class teaching more interactive.
The teaching program's enhanced quality will not only boost the number of incoming students at the JKU Business Schools, but will also serve to verify and uphold our claim of excellence in teaching and education. Our faculty members’ and students’ recognition that they are a part of an outstanding teaching programs is, in turn, the basis to build a strong reputation in the Austrian educational market and beyond.
