This study presents some examples of innovative learning environments based on innovation pedagogy and concrete tools to assess and boost students’ innovation competences. The tested instruments bring a new perspective and support for curriculum design, pedagogical practices and teaching, and assessment in higher education.
Traditional educational approaches no longer lead to competences appreciated in the job market and necessary for creating and maintaining a sustainable future. This book helps educational institutions to understand how to organize and implement education in order to ensure their graduates have innovation competences needed in all fields.
This handbook presents a new pedagogical method – the research hatchery – on a practical level, offering experiences and implications relating to the method. Research hatcheries are part of the innovation pedagogy approach adopted at TUAS, and they have also been applied in the project Innovation Competencies Development (INCODE).
