TEKRI's mission is to promote research and development of technologies that enhance the development, application and transfer of human knowledge, and to promote the growth of a community of researchers at Athabasca University.
A place of the highest standards of collaboration in academic and applied research, where collegial and virtual environments are created to support academic and practitioner excellence in project management.
There are a significant number of Knowledge Infrastructure Program (KIP) and Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) projects at Athabasca University. These initiatives aim to improve AU's IT and other capital infrastructure and break down the barriers to online learning by digitizing course content. Dozens of jobs will be created by the programs, many in parts of rural Alberta that have been hard hit by the current recession.
Learning Communities strives to bring access to and awareness of learning opportunities to northern Aboriginal communities of Alberta. Working at the grass-roots level, it provides learning tools that community members can use to succeed in life as productive members of their community. The combination of these tools help support economic prosperity and develop a sustainable community.
