European Initiative for Education
The „European Initiative for Education“ (EIE) is an international (European) private Non-Profit education and training organization in Austria (legal status: association). There are offices in Wiener Neustadt / Austria and in Athens / Greece.
EIE’s mission is to endorse an innovative approach to education, training and culture; this is done by using the method of „Blended Learning“ as an advanced technique of education and training. A new challenge for us is the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Community.
The EIE is integrated in a network of similar institutions in Europe; there are training organizations, educational establishments, research and development centers, public authorities, specialists etc.
The scope of courses is focused on Technology Enhanced Learning (formerly called eLearning) with the learning platforms Moodle, ACollab, and Claroline; Blended Learning; Multimedia (Interactivity and Multimedia Content), Content Management Systems, Presentation Techniques, and Project Management.
The EBI/EIE is not only a training association but also involved in research. The researcher team of the EBI publishes regularly the current research results and is involved as speaker at international conferences, for example the ICERI (in Seville).
We are actively involved in the Erasmus+ Programme and offer:
- Trainings in the Frame of KA 1 projects (trainings for teachers, trainers, adult learners)
- Strategic Partnerships – KA 2 projects
Starting with autumn 2017, the EBI/EIE (and the partner organisation European Foundation for Quality in Blended Learning EFQBL) starts two new Erasmus+ strategic partnerships (in the field of Distance Learning and Blended Learning):
With 2018, the project “Flipped Adult Education” has been launched.
In December 2018, another project dealing with digital competences and digital photography is going to be started.
