Arcada creates two new innovative and inspiring learning environments that support active learning, participation and entrepreneurial thinking. The new spaces provide students the best possible tools to develop their skills for their future working life through encouraging curiosity, creativity and collaboration.
The view on efficient work and studies is evolving. Many students thrive in an environment where they have the possibility to complete tasks from home or online, whereas some still prefer on-campus acitivities on a large scale. Therefore, we need to create flexible learning environments that make it possible for students to participate in teaching based on their own needs and conditions.
To support learning and collaboration between students, we are building a new activity-based learning environment, Online Learning Space, which consists of a hybrid teaching room, a room for active learning and a group room. With the help of digital teaching solutions, this new environment enables human encounters both physically and digitally.
A survey among our students shows that there is also a demand for environments where they can practice their creative thinking, communication and personal leadership. The new learning environment Arcada Coaching Lab has been planned and co-created together with our students.
This environment supports the development of soft skills and entrepreneurial thinking. Arcada Coaching Lab encourages innovation and problem solving - both together and individually. Here, our students get the opportunity to work with group work and individual assignments, but also the opportunity to pitch ideas and practice their presentation skills.
Skills for working life
Arcada Coaching Lab and Online Learning Space give students the best possible conditions to master skills that will be a competitive advantage at the beginning of their careers. By providing tools and open learning environments, we create space for interdisciplinary meetings and give students the chance to grow into their professional role. Join in and create flexible and inspiring learning environments for the future!
