    This module is designed to help teachers in introducing a new mindset for their students: how to stimulate the entrepreneurial spirit among them, while giving tools to develop such a skill and co-creating with them. This will be done independently of the discipline, providing some examples.

    The aim of the workshop is to prepare participants to take the first steps in using project-based learning (PBL). The workshop will discuss the basics of the methodology and conduct an exercise for designing a modest PBL activity that incorporates the basic elements.

    This module is designed to help teachers in using the case method for any type of course, no matter if your discipline is about STEM, Social Sciences, Humanities or Arts. The module deals with the benefits of teaching with cases and the fundamentals about how to do it effectively.

    We are amid a revolution of work, which started already long before the pandemic. Making sense of the future of work can feel tricky in the middle of a constant information overflow. This course is supported with academic research and references packaged in a way that is easy to access. In this course, we will look at how the roles of the individual, organisations and society have changed and how it affects how we work today and in the future.
