Curriculum-development has become a collaborative process, involving students and industries. Faculty in their role as coaches are tapping into students intrinsic motivation and curiosity. Learning communities and flexible learning spaces have replaced lecture halls. So what comes next as we’re creating higher learning impact?
A selected group of students will facilitate an exchange on how technology is keeping up with the reality of new educational principles at the the session: Students in the Lead: Technologies for Demand-driven Education.
“The group will tap into the wishes and demands of users, discuss functionalities and requirements of new learning spaces and share best practices, tips and tricks,” explains OEB conference chair, Rebecca Stromeyer.
On the panel are Partnership Manager, Rick Bastiaanssen and students Iris Wardenaar and Marit Steketee.
Rick Bastiaanssen is an intermediary between businesses, research and education. He helps companies find collaboration opportunities with education and research. Looking ahead to his panel session at OEB he said: “During OEB, Avans’ students will lead a workshop on how technology can help and support this demand-driven education approach. Traditional education is coming to an end. Our environment demands agile and ever-learning young professionals. That means a shift in thinking about what education should look like. At Avans University, The Netherlands, we have started this shift by quitting on outdated teachings, classrooms, and exams. Instead, our students work on real projects at real organizations, based on their own learning objectives.”
Students in the Lead: Technologies for Demand-driven Education takes place at OEB on Thursday, Dec 6 at 14:30 and forms part of a series of sessions about the future of higher education.
OEB 2018 takes place in Berlin from 5-7 December.
