Didaktisk digitalt verksted (DDV) - Didactic Digital Lab
Didaktisk Digitalt Verksted at the University of Stavanger (UiS) is an edulab used by researches and pre-service teachers at the Faculty of Arts and Education at UiS. The edulab is connected to a national network of similar edulabs in Norway, initiated by The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training (UDIR).
The edulab is the center for rethinking teaching and learning by introducing new technologies, for instance VR/AR/mixed reality, robotics, video/computer games, coding. There is also a unique makerspace zone. The edulab has all kinds of projects and practical workshops, and supports local schools. The edulab helps introduce innovative and creative technological teaching methods into the classroom practice.
Our edulab is involved in a strategic partnership in a new decentralized competence development model in Norway. In 2018, Norway´s Directorate for Education and Training began implementing a new model for professional development. It seeks to establish a sustainable approach to school improvement that would respond to local contexts and wide-ranging needs across Norwegian schools. Our edulab is also participating in a regional network for bringing e-sports into education and is involved in the Erasmus+ project "No teacher educator left behind" (NOTELEB).
