In a bigger picture, education needs to improve students’ work life capabilities and employability in general.
The platform aims to foster course design
The approach of Teaching Lab is collaborative, challenge-based, and design-centric. The best learning environments at Aalto are built in ecosystems where the university, students, and companies work and learn together.
The teaching content should include real-life challenges, multidisciplinary approaches, and broad comprehension over what student needs are.
The methods and tools should promote challenge-based learning and should be both transparent and accessible to students.
Time and space refer to the dates, times during the day, and the physical/online space where teaching and learning happen. They need to be clear and utilitarian in the context of the course content.
Assessment criteria as well as how feedback will be given and by whom needs to be transparent.
Various organizations, communities, and people are likely to be involved, so knowing who they are and what roles they play is substantial.
