Fontys ICT Innovationlab
for Educators

Introduction

Introduction

Businesses and higher education are facing a challenge. ICT as a field of work is developing at an accelerating pace, making traditional methods redundant. Yesterday's knowledge is soon outdated, professionals and students need a new skill set for lifelong learning and development. Fontys ICT InnovationLab is a hybrid learning environment, where co-creation and cooperation facilitate broader knowledge creation and transfer, but also fulfil personal learning goals through shared learning.

Fontys ICT InnovationLab: the hybrid learning environment for ICT professionals

By stimulating research project-based learning in teams that consist of students, teachers, professors and business partners, we are creating a unique open learning environment that enables knowledge to grow. In this hybrid learning setting, each participant is able to form his or her own learning goals and work towards enhancing and expanding their expertise. By experimenting with novel methods, like shared learning teams, we strive to create the possibility for ICT professionals, regardless of their work field position, to keep learning, growing and innovating.
