"Welcome to join this workshop on challenge-based learning (CBL) for a half day session to explore how we may reshape our ideas on adult learning in higher education of the 21st century and beyond, re-thinking how the university is an innovative place of inspiration and co-creation of knowledge for societal improvement, and where students as change agents collaboratively with partners identify challenges, learn and shape for improvement.

We’ll work together to address some questions:
• Why do we need to re-design learning and teaching in higher education?
• What readiness to act does a graduate need for the future?
• What learning environments are living labs for testing critical thinking and critical doing?
• How do we re-think and include students as partners to improve quality in HE?
• How do we learn in a globally connected world?"
