About the Virtual Academy

Vision and Values

The joy of learning is our top priority. But how does a learning process succeed in today’s university environment? We believe that excellent teaching comes from the right mix of didactic competence and digital skills. To make the magic work, we support teachers with a wide range of evidence-based services, from customised one-to-one coaching to concise professional development and CAS degree programmes.

In our work, we always rely on open and appreciative communication. Our focus is on practice: we deal with real problems from everyday teaching and do not orient ourselves to short-term trends. In this way, we contribute to a sustainable transformation in education and a careful use of digital tools.
