Education and Knowledge Exchange
- 22 Downloads
How does education prepare talented graduates to be stronger contributors to knowledge exchange and innovation?
Education develops the potential of the students to lead fulfilling, productive lives. As they leave the university, they become talented graduates, able to contribute to knowledge exchange, innovation, and more broadly to society.
The outcomes of their education that they carry into the next phase of their lives include deep working understanding of established fundamentals and emerging knowledge, essential life and professional skills, approaches and judgment, as well as know-how in research and innovation.
Knowledge is exchanged when students work as interns, and when they leave the university for employment or to start new ventures.
Implementing an integrated curriculum, an educational plan for preparing students in disciplinary fundamentals, and with life and professional skills.
Engaging students in active, experiential and digital learning, for deeper conceptual understanding, self-efficacy, and self-learning.
Promptly introducing emerging and cross-disciplinary thought from research into the curriculum as new disciplines or interdisciplinary programs.
Offering courses within the curriculum in leadership, management, and entrepreneurship to better prepare students for innovation.
