 Can a HEI pedagogical framework contribute to the development of a sustainable community, and also be a driver for the development of the institution itself? What happens when academic staff and students are invited to be part of the process of defining a pedagogy that will make HE relevant to societal transformation and at the same time supporting students to be able to meet and handle current and future challenges? This paper will present the ongoing process of developing a framework for Challenge Based Learning at Malmö University in Sweden and institutional implications of that work.
