One of the invariants for the education through the time is the effort for improvement and changes caused by different cultural, economic, and overall civilization circumstances. Nowadays, the huge impact of digital technology on educational systems and everyday practice is evident. The didactic theory still seeks guidelines for adequate use of new information communication technology. Higher education in Serbia also is a part of this process, as activities of ERASMUS+ project TeComp (Strengthening Teaching Competencies in Higher Education in Natural and Mathematical Sciences, 598434-EPP-1-2018-1-RS-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP) testified. In this paper, we present some outcomes and experiences collected during the project with an aim to disseminate results and to contribute broad discussion in the HE community. We give a quick overview of teachers’ attitudes about ICT in their teaching practice as well as some important information and conclusions conducted from evaluations of trainings the most visited by teachers from the Faculty of Science, Kragujevac, concerning aspects of incorporating blended learning in HE in fields of natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, and informatics as a way for strengthening teacher competences.
