About the Event


The aim of this workshop is to introduce Learning by Developing,LbD, the awarded teaching and learningmethoddeveloped in Finland at Laurea University of Applied Sciences. LbD is a pedagogical model that is based on learning through R&D&I. Its very pragmatic nature has made it possible to engage both the students and teachers in a very new and innovative process of learning together with the working life partners, whether they are companies, NGOs, hospitals or other operators. Much of the learning and studies are conducted in projects, and students learn holistic competencies required in the modern, quickly changing working life. In this way, the role of the UAS is to work proactively for the betterment of local societies and their wellbeing. Students are seen like younger colleagues, and the teachers' role is more like that of a project facilitator and supervisor. 


In addition to theoretical understanding of the LbD model, this workshop will include interactive exercises and hands on experiences.
