On the one hand educators agree on the importance of integrating 21st century skills in curricula to assure graduates are ready for an unpredictable future, while on the other hand we struggle to implement this in our curricula fearing we’re not offering them enough content-knowledge to start their professional careers. Therefore we’re implementing a sustainable future-proof curriculum which gives our students the necessary tools to get started and to keep on learning. This session will guide you through our process of developing a student-centered curriculum focused on self-regulation, authentic learning and deep level integrated learning.
