EELISA Research-based Learning Symposium I
In recent years, a new approach to education has been emerging – a perspective that brings state-of-the-art research outcomes into the classroom and allows students to come face-to-face with real-life challenges that we aim to solve through research. This is called “Research-based Learning” (RBL). A novel methodological and philosophical approach to education that, in contrast to traditional education where technical skills are built bottom-up from theoretical foundations towards applications, shows students how to approach real problems from the get-go, the foundational knowledge that they require, and how it can be obtained.
The first EELISA Research-based Learning Symposium will take place on 17-18 May at Istanbul Technical University (ITÜ), collocated with the innoCORE R&I Symposium on 16 May.
What are the main purposes of the EELISA Research-based Learning Symposium?
* Gather RBL practices applied at each EELISA partner in order to build on the experiences encountered.
* Explore the opportunities in university-business collaboration in RBL, allowing graduates to prepare for what is expected after graduation.
* Promote and showcase the EELISA Communities that are actively working to realize RBL.
* Bring together all parties involved in the EELISA Alliance: students, researchers, higher education administrators, businesses, and citizens, in order to explore opportunities for innovative joint RBL activities.
Why should you join this event?
→ If you are a researcher, the symposium will give you the opportunity to meet and share views with researchers from all the EELISA partner institutions.
→ If you are a student, you can learn about exchange opportunities, share your EELISA experience, meet student teams, familiarize yourself with EELISA Communities and maybe join a Community.
→ If you are a business owner or NGO member, you will have the opportunity to present your organization’s work involving RBL and explore innovative partnerships.
→ If you are a governmental representative, the symposium will allow you to observe the trends in Engineering and its new learning methods.
→ If you are none of the above but would like to know more about RBL, you are invited to this groundbreaking event!
