Vaduz - The University of Liechtenstein is heading up the Erasmus+ project Pathfinder, in which four European institutions are working to anchor artificial intelligence (AI) in higher education. The planned measures include development of a learning program for students.

Since January, the University of Liechtenstein has been leading a project to promote AI knowledge and skills as part of higher education. The Erasmus+ project Pathfinder aims to develop a framework to support teaching staff, an AI-supported toolkit for lesson planning, and a learning program for students. It is hoped that these measures will “improve employability, foster innovation and strengthen the resilience of the European education community”, writes the University of Liechtenstein in a press release about the project.

Alongside the University of Liechtenstein, three other educational institutions will contribute their expertise to the Erasmus+ project. The LAB University of Applied Sciences in Finland is known for its innovative developments and integration of AI into educational programs. The University of Dubrovnik has experience of developing educational and training programs. The formatio private school in Liechtenstein is using its expertise to help strengthen individual knowledge and develop innovative learning methods.

“The results of this project will not only improve digital readiness and educational practices within the participating institutions, but will also provide valuable insights and resources for the entire European educational community,” says the University of Liechtenstein. The project partners will be able to position themselves as pioneers in promoting responsible technological innovation in the field of education. The project will also investigate the social impact of AI. ce/hs
