The two F2F workshops on student-centred learning were held in AAU and KTH, respectively. AAU is well known for its problem-based learning approach, an approach to teaching and learning that is ideally suited for education for sustainability, entrepreneurship and innovation, while KTH has been applying the Challenge Driven Education in their cooperation with universities in Tanzania.
In the first SCL workshop in AAU the program included the following main points:
Study visits during the first workshop included: The AAU university library, where trainees were given a tour and presented with some of the latest tools for information search; Visits to students’ groups, working in collaboration with industry on their project work. During these visits, trainees came to talk with both students, teachers and industry representatives, which gave them a broad stakeholder perspective on the usefulness of PBL.
The phase 3 assignments for SCL trainees consisted of three asynchronous online sessions, with selected readings and facilitating questions for each session.
The second SCL workshop in Stockholm had as main points on the programme the following:
Study visits at KTH included: The Visualization Studio VIS, a research environment with modern technology for visualization and interaction, where students, staff and industry meet; The Swedish Technical Museum, with the exhibition ‘100 innovations’; the KTH university library and academic centre for KTH students.
