Teaching Lab

Teaching Lab  — Designing future-proof education.

We provide services, workshops as well as information and inspiration for designing future-proof education. We want to help teachers and other education practitioners to develop teaching 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, who can navigate in the ever-changing and complex work life.

Our mission is to design work-life services for Aalto teachers!

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

Teaching Lab/ Impact & Meaning

What do we do?

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

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

  • COLLABORATION
    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.
