Study Contents – Future Classrooms Are Online

The structure of the studies are as innovative as the programme itself. Studies are based on a blended learning model: distance learning sessions using online and video conferencing tools, and 2-4 face-to-face sessions in Oulu. The face-to-face sessions will take place at various times throughout the academic year, starting with a short summer session in Oulu with all participants in August 2019.

Key topics for the first sessions are: program structure, introductions to Finnish education, entrepreneurship and service design, research methodologies, clarification of product prototype challenges, online components, continued self-paced assignments covering education, entrepreneurship and design as well as research thesis topics.

In addition to contact teaching sessions, there will be monthly video conference sessions throughout the academic year.
