EDUCATION DAY 2016: THE STUDENT OF THE FUTURE
THURSDAY OCTOBER 27TH, 12.15 – 17.00, DE WAAIER
Who would have thought fifty years ago we could order our groceries online, depend on our smartphones whether to take an umbrella or talk to and see our relatives on the other side of the world? Imagine what will be possible fifty years from now! Our world is moving fast and asks for people who are flexible and who are able to develop and learn new things fast. It’s our challenge to educate this future generation.
What does the student of the future look like? How do we support the development of our students into 21st century professionals and researchers? What is expected from them when they start working? This year the education day is all about these questions.
The day starts with a debate between academia and business community.
Furthermore, the education day offers several hands-on and brains-on workshops, facilitated by internal and external parties, like:
· a think tank about the engineer of the future
· hands-on workshops on ways to motivate and involve students in your education
