How do you develop trend-setting education?
In 2017/2018, 16 students from various study programs were trained by trend experts at Utrecht University of Applied Sciences to become trendwatchers. Afterwards, they are guided in setting up startups to bring their innovative idea to life. The starting point were megatrends (including Blockchain) and trends within the HU (including multidisciplinary and personalized learning).
The aim was to get students acquainted with the state of the art modern trends in the world and to develop products that connect educational programs which will really going to be used. Think of a HUflix and a HUber.
It has become a project by and for students, with the work field, expertise centers and honors lecturers. A project with yields on many dimensions that tastes like more. Discover how you could develop this yourself, and maybe we could work together on the colleges.
This workshop is given by Hedwigh Verbruggen, of Hogeschool van Utrecht.
