Teaching Lab

Teaching Lab  — Designing future-proof education.

We provide assistance as well as information and inspiration for designing future-proof education. We want to help educators to develop teaching and learning to the next level by sharing innovative methods and ideas on how to integrate partnerships to the education and how to equip students with future competences - to become Lifelong Learners and Future-Led Experts, who can navigate in the ever-changing and complex work life.

Teaching Lab is a team of experienced practitioners in the field of challenge-based learning and industry collaboration in teaching. If you wish to have pedagogical support for your courses, Aalto's Learning Services and Pedagogical training will help you!

The concept has been created and tested at Aalto University as a part of the strategic initiative Learning Challenge Aalto.

What do we do?

    We aim to test new ideas, methods, tools, and teaching concepts in the process of designing work-life oriented education.

    We are gathering exciting news, resources, and other information related to developing future-proof teaching and learning.

    We believe that teaching can be designed into an experience which adds value to students, to the whole Aalto community, and also to the external partners.
