About EMPOWER

New modes of teaching and learning create new opportunities for enhancing the quality of the learning experience in on-campus programmes, reaching out to new target groups off-campus and offering freely accessible courses nationally or worldwide through the internet. 

The implementation of new modes of teaching and learning requires institutional strategies and frameworks. It cannot be successful without a strong motivation of professional teaching staff and without a continuous commitment from the top management of a higher education institution.

EMPOWER has been established to support European Higher Education Institutions in their transition to new modes of teaching and learning in:

  • Blended education or the combination of e-learning and face to face teaching and learning on campus (in mainstream degree programmes).
  • Online and flexible education for 25 + students, in short, or degree programmes or in continuing education schemes (incl. CPD).
  • Open education, which is freely available in the public domains (e.g. open educational resources, MOOCs).
