Virtual Virtuosity

Virtual Virtuosity: Building Character Through Practical Wisdom in a Digital World. A "Digital Sciences for Society" Project at Tilburg University

How can we make the values and virtues of religious orders fruitful for social engagement and personal growth through an online learning platform?

The gradual withdrawal of religious orders and congregations from society is most evident in the Netherlands, where centuries-old communities are now being dissolved. Their religious heritage is monumental both materially and spiritually. Whereas their monasteries and gardens are being repurposed, their values and virtues run the risk of disappearing forever. This project intends to develop an online learning platform prototype to make these values and virtues fruitful through digital means in educational settings.
