Aalto Co-Educator team (ACE)
In the face of an increasing need to address complex and global challenges, universities and teachers need to facilitate students' learning of competencies for working with complexity and creating holistic and systemic solutions.
The Aalto Co-Educator (ACE) team supports such teaching development by integrating meaningful learning goals from sustainability, entrepreneurship and creativity into courses and programmes. We provide hands-on support for curriculum development to programme heads, and for course development and pedagogical training to teachers.
The common goal of the teaching faculty is to enable the building of competencies for our students. Jointly with the teacher community, our team aims to provide students with tools for shaping a sustainable future.
The project started in autumn 2021 with pilots on course and programme development. In 2022, we are expanding our activities across all the schools. We have had curriculum development workshops with the faculties of the School of Chemical Engineering and School of Business. Our project will continue until 2024.
