RiBL is special in the way that it builds on a close relationship between practice and research. Usually research-based teaching is emphasized as an important foundation of the university. In the RiBL project, teaching-based research is just as important. The RiBL project will make it possible for us to try out new ideas while exploring their value for student learning.

There are two main project goals for the RiBL Project

Research

Focus for the RiBL project is to develop new pedagogically valuable forms of teaching and learning activities combining no- or low-tech with high tech opportunities. And to make them the object for research.

By experimenting with technology in combination with face-to-face teaching, the aim in RiBL is to develop CBS pedagogically and to make sure that other Higher Education institutions will learn from this.

Implementation

The project will benefit all of CBS’ 22,000 students when blended learning is implemented to become the new dominant form of teaching and learning at CBS. To help and ease the transition, there will be a focus on training and support of teachers, administrative staff and students.

To accommodate the changes, new support structures, new organizational forms and new physical spaces will be tested and implemented in close collaboration with the researchers on the projects.
