The Virtual University College of Teacher Education - as a federal centre since 2011 located at the University College of Teacher Education Burgenland - is an innovation hub for digital educational trends and a support partner for all universities and university colleges of teacher education. On behalf of the Ministry of Education, it supports and advises them in the implementation of innovative digital teaching and learning concepts. It develops and tests online formats and their use in teacher training and further education and ensures the transfer of know-how regarding digital competences in higher education teaching. Furthermore, various initiatives by the Ministry of Education, such as Digital Basic Education | digifolio | digikompP | MOOCs and others, are supported.
