Bundling Learner Effort to Boost Learning Impact
Date Thursday, Dec 6 Time – Room Knight
In both collaborative learning and peer-to-peer learning, students work together to improve their knowledge-acquisition experience. Technically speaking, the former involves students learning alongside one another; in the latter, they learn from each other. There’s clearly no silver bullet but engaged educators worldwide are at work connecting technology, new pedagogy and deep learning. In this panel, information about activities around the world will show how, piece by piece, pedagogical concepts are being formulated that comprise the best of the new without discarding what’s proven effective in the past.

No Lectures, No Exams, No Orders: How I Manage Curiosity-Driven Education
Christoph Janke ist a Software Engineering student at the CODE University of Applied Sciences.
While he was studying at Humboldt University Berlin Christoph realized that the classical educational approach does not work for him. From his work experience in online marketing he learned that learning and growing often happens outside a classroom in which a teacher or professor stands in the front and explains topics to students.
He then began to start studying at the CODE University which holds the unique approach of project based learning in it's center. As one of 80 students from the first class he helped shaping the learning concept and university over the last one and a half years.
