Arno Meerman (UIIN and S2BMRC), Balzhan Orazbayeva (S2BMRC) and a/Prof. Todd Davey (IMT-BS and former S2BMRC) were invited to host the Future Universities Workshop at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, on the 22nd of October. The facilitators worked with an innovative group of Swedish knowledge transfer professionals at one of Sweden's most prestigious universities.
The aim of the creative workshop was to share knowledge and collectively analyse the current situation of the HEIs to then (re-) design and co-create a vision of the future university, highlighting its potential roles and functions. A number of concepts emerged during the workshop including the notion of open education with students as knowledge surfers and educators like personal (education) trainers facilitating and coaching students through challenge-driven projects.
