Future Learning & Innovation in Universities of Applied Sciences, 15 – 16 May 2018 Pori, Finland

The world of work is changing. Students need new skills and competencies to meet the requirements that they face in the future. The role of Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) is essential in overcoming these challenges. Through their strong and sustainable links with the working life and their ability to produce research, development and innovation (RDI) activities of the highest quality, the UASs are educating the professionals and innovators of tomorrow.

At the core of this process is learning. New pedagogical methods including the use of digital solutions in teaching and learning create vast possibilities. However, they also force us to ask how to verify that we are making the right choices. We are not only talking about the multidisciplinary work and the future economy, but also about the skills that the future learner needs. What are the competences that are needed and how can we best support our students in adopting these?

The conference aims to continue the discussion on future learning within tertiary education, including competencies and topics related to RDI. The event brings together UAS actors from Europe and Asia to share experiences and ideas on the topic. The participants have the possibility to present short discussion papers during the conference workshop sessions.

The target group of the conference consists of UAS developers, rectors, vice-rectors, researchers, professors, teachers, and other UAS-related stakeholders.
