Dutch Design: The Intention of Collaboration from a Vision on Learning and Teaching Towards an Integrated Learning Environment

Wednesday, January 21 | 12:30PM–1:30PM | Bonaire 3-4
Session Type: Professional Development
Avans University developed an educational vision of learning—the Dutch Design—in which the university connects people and creates knowledge through an organic approach. The development of our educational vision affects all levels of the university and results in a shared educational culture. We will highlight the translation of the vision in an integrated learning environment in which physical, virtual, and mental aspects are combined. In the field of engineering, the vision was the starting point for the design of a learning environment characterized by authenticity, proximity, flexibility, partnership, and the place-to-be!
