About the project
In the process of education, teachers play the central role in imparting skills, competences, knowledge and international perspectives of young people. This is why teachers need to „gain excellent training and attractive perspectives for their professional development and remuneration”.
Universities often describe their mission as the creation and transmission of knowledge. For many years, these two processes took place within areas called “disciplines” or subjects. Traditionally, knowledge was developed within disciplines and curricula organized within discipline-based departments. However, the complexity of societal and scientific problems has required a change in this approach.
The CT.Uni project is an opportunity to develop a collaborative meta-study as a comprehensive overview of what has been developed in higher education to identify the specific effectiveness of creativity and innovation and a wider STEAM approach. We seek to achieve this goal by supporting students, teachers and also management staff in going beyond the boundaries of a specific area of study or discipline by stimulating their divergent, creative and transdisciplinary thinking. Such a transdisciplinary approach can be used as a mechanism to drive innovation within higher education.
The CT.Uni project is Co-Funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union (Ref.: 2021-1-SK01-KA220-HED-000023022).
