intrinsic wants to change the way we learn: from extrinsic to intrinsic motivation.


Learning based on an inner stimulus is more fun and prepares people for a changing world. The aim of intrinsic is a radical shift from extrinsically to intrinsically  motivated learning – in school and at work. It is about choosing what you learn and how you get there.

By applying self-organization and by taking responsibility you learn to learn in a way that will be useful for the rest of your life. The consciousness for context is crucial and fosters the desire to contribute sensibly to society.
What do you want to learn?

Three Projects

Three projects make intrinsic a magnet as well as an impulse generator for a paradigm change in learning.

intrinsic Campus

The core of intrinsic is this space for learning: it serves for training teachers from all over Switzerland. Teachers experience intrinsic motivated learning themselves and therefore prepare themselves for the school of the future.

intrinsic Business

intrinsic Business assists companies in their personnel development in order to keep up with a rapidly transforming environment: the aim is to fulfill the potential of each person. Individual and corporate goals are reconciled. The objective is reached through self-organized learning.

intrinsic Resources

intrinsic provides know how about learning to everybody. This is achieved through a digital platform, publications and events.


intrinsic is a network. We happily welcome lateral thinkers and experienced professionals and invite them to join intrinsic. Please contact us.
