Network for IT-Research and Competence in Education [ITU]
Network for IT-Research and Competence in Education (ITU) is an academic and administrative unit, which is a part of the Faculty of Education, at the University of Oslo. ITU shall be proactive and help put relevant ICT topics on the education policy agenda. Its main functions are dissemination and research from the user perspective. ITU shall also play a network-creating role within its field in relation to other relevant academic communities.
The Network for IT Research and Competence in Education (ITU) was founded in 1997 as a key project in the Ministry of Education and Research’s first action plan, “Information Technology in Education 1996–1999” and was continued in the second action plan “Information and Communications Technology in Norwegian Education. Plan for 2000–2003”. ITU was originally founded as a national research and competence network for information technology (IT) in education, under the administration of the University of Oslo (UiO).
In 2003, ITU was evaluated by the Norwegian Institute for Studies in Research and Higher Education (NIFU). NIFU’s evaluation report states: “Our main conclusion is that ITU has lived up to its mandate in a constructive manner within the constraints of the resources that were provided.” The evaluation concluded with the need to promote the further development of the ITU community as a separate organisation from 2004. On 1 January 2004, ITU was established as a permanent national academic unit at the University of Oslo.
ITU has been given the following mandate:
