A number of activities have also taken place in 2019 within the framework of this research unit. We have placed a special focus on cooperation projects with the Swiss Distance University of Applied Sciences (FFHS) in Brig.
In applied research, the digitalisation of a practice-based course (DPL) project picked up some momentum during the year. We held a series of workshops and were able to develop the conceptual basis for the implementation of an innovative course.
In the field of practice transfer activities, we also relied on cooperation with the FFHS and organised a themed evening on the digitisation of business processes as part of the “iischi Wirtschaft” series.
At the centre of every organisation are, of course, the employees whose activities are the basis of the organisation’s success. The TEWI is a small unit with only a few staff members on whose shoulders the various activities and tasks rest. In 2019, there has been a major upheaval and virtually all the staff from the previous year, except myself, have left. With a new team, we have started to tackle the ongoing projects. In particular, I would like to mention the new Managing Director, Clemens Deinhofer, who has given TEWI new drive since last April. I would also like to refer in this context to the pleasant contacts with staff members of the FFHS, especially in the context of our cooperations, namely Oliver Kamin, Sebastian Straus, Willi Bernhard, Anja Bouron and Vreni Öztürk.
