Virtuology Institute aims to become a global center for research and promotion of virtuology. HQ is in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Virtuology Institute enjoys a reputation for being a hotbed of innovation. Its task is to update the content of the Virtuology program to ensure that it reflects political, social, economic, ecological and technological developments. By updating and developing the Virtuology, the Institute intents to further promote virtue-based teaching and learning across the world.
Another aim of the Virtuology Institute is to better understand the needs of stakeholders for the future use of the framework and to identify useful tools and processes which can help policymakers and practitioners in their work.
Randomized field experiments, impact indicators, KPI, benchmarking practices and estimation methods are strong research designs for assessing program relevance, effectiveness, and impact. To bypass any biases in estimating our program’s effects, we welcome any third party to do the evaluation.
The main measure is the grade of progress, which is assessed at the beginning, throughout, and at the end of the program participation by ratings and metrics. Together, we formulate clear indicators for each objective and result, set how and when to conduct monitoring and evaluation to determine the progress and outcome.
