UNESCO-Chair on Personalised and Adaptive Distance Education

The Swiss Distance University of Applied Sciences (SDUAS) has been conducting research into technology-based learning for almost 20 years and, together with the Institute for Research in Open Distance and e-Learning (IRODeL), is part of a select national and international network of e-learning researchers. In 2015, these research achievements were honoured with a UNESCO Chair for Personalised and Adaptive Distance Education.

The UNESCO Chair at IRODeL conducts research into adaptive learning concepts, conditions of integration into various study regulations and curricula, technological applications and their useful application in concrete learning concepts.


The research will focus on two areas in the context of technology-based learning environments. The development of personalised and adaptive designs and instruction models for the promotion of subject-specific knowledge/competence on the one hand and the measurement and promotion of learning-related emotions on the other.


During the first four years, activities will concentrate on partnerships in Europe and Africa. Cultural and economic differences at an organisational and regional level will serve as research catalysts. In this respect, the Chair will be further developed to form an internationally active competence pool in the field of technology-based and personalised and adaptive learning.
