NHL University of Applied Sciences• We cover Technical and Social Sciences:Economics and Management, Education andCommunication, Health and Social work, Mediaand Technologies• Together with our neighbour University weeducate the educators in our region• A strong ambition to educate for the future
The Context• Open region :)• SME’s crucial• Agriculture, tourism, andhealth care dominate• Economic, social andeducational issues
The research to discuss• Knowledge21 =• NHL21 +• Education21 +• EU projects like ODS and Transit• How to develop NHL as an open successfulUniversity of Applied Sciences?
Some developments• Ten primary and secondary schools acted asliving labs in 2010-2012• Teachers as action researchers workingtogether with students on local researchquestions gave a boost to the development ofthe schools• 2013-2014 we expect to work with 20/40schools and 40/80 teachers and five NHLresearch groups, and our education programs
Knowledge21 objectives• Further development of our network of regularand lifelong learners, and applied researchers,together with regional innovators andprofessionals in the field of education• Contribute to innovative design, access, use,and validation of digital knowledge media(education and research resources andservices)• To realize an open and co-creative educationand research region
