“It is increasingly important for students to develop the skills needed for solving real-world problems and not just grades. By including challenged-based learning in our curriculum, we give students the opportunity to develop skills of relevance for their future employers.”
Dr Wisdom Kanda, Senior Lecturer and Head of Unit at the Division of Environmental Technology at Linköping University
“Universities are educating the change agents of tomorrow. This requires a good mixture of learning approaches. Challenge-based learning definitely brings a lot of fun for students, lecturers and business partners and accelerates sustainable business ideas.”
Anne Seela, Research Associate in Innovation Management and Sustainability at the University of Oldenburg
“I moved towards challenge-based learning, because I believe it greatly enhances entrepreneurial learning and experience. It also increases student motivation, because the students realise that the business partners are genuinely interested in their sustainable ideas.”
