Good Practices for work-life relevant teaching
What are Good Practices?
Teaching Lab's idea of a Good Practice is a scalable and transferable resource, tool, method, or course example which promotes students' work-life connections and competences.
This page is divided into two sections:
Practical tools, methods, and resources.
Examples of other work-life relevant courses, programs, and platforms from Aalto.

Below, we have three practical categories: tools, methods, and resources. Each category contains linked material for education practitioners to be used in designing work-life relevant teaching!
Here, we lift brilliant courses, programs, and platforms from Aalto as examples that integrate work-life competences and connections to teaching. Is there something essential missing? Give us a hint!
Teaching Lab also funds pilot courses for work-life relevant education, here you can find more info about Next Practice pilot funding!

Urbanization is a global phenomenon that determines the future of our societies. Most of the key challenges of contemporary societies are encountered and addressed in cities. Cities provide enormous economic, technical and cultural opportunities, but they are also places of social conflicts and segregation as well as environmental and health problems. The magnitude of such challenges implies that no single field of research or profession can tackle them alone. Urban development requires an integrated approach.
