Harper Adams will next week host a meeting of the ISLE Erasmus Academic network: "Innovation in the teaching of Sustainable Development in Life sciences in Europe".
The network involves higher education institutions, research institutes and enterprises from 30 countries, interested in introducing the concept of sustainable development in their curricula and/or institutions having had experience in this area, who are willing to transmit their know-how on this subject.
From 23rd until 28th April 2012, the 5th ISLE project meeting and an exploitation seminar will be hosted by Harper Adams University College and facilitated by the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME, USA) using the “Action Collab” format.
Action Collabs are dynamic workshops that use the design-thinking framework to innovate new ideas with actionable next steps. Throughout the experience, participants engage in improvisational exercises specifically designed to encourage expansive thought and accelerate meaningful collaboration.
