Next Practices pilot funding

We call for pilot proposals from all Aalto people (faculty, program directors, researchers, staff, students) on integrating work life skills and/or industry collaborations into teaching and learning.Teaching Lab provides support on design, technology and pedagogy and opportunities for co-creation. Check out our Good Practices site for tools, methods and resources for work-life relevant education!

Teaching Lab/ Impact & Meaning

Teaching Lab team evaluates applications for Next Practices pilot funding based on a proper project plan and the following criteria:

  • How will this pilot enhance the integration of work life skills and/or company collaboration into teaching and learning at Aalto University?
  • How are you planning to evaluate impact?
  • Are there collaborating partners outside of Aalto University?

Teamwork First-Aid Kit

Teamwork First-Aid Kit gathers tools that have proved to be useful in supporting diverse teams tackling ill-defined problems and building foundational elements for the successful teamwork. It is a small step toward educating game-changers who can make a team more than a sum of its parts. Undeniably, teamwork skills are among the most pivotal work-life skills that younger generation entering the workforce are expected to master.
