Student-centred learning and learning ergonomics are becoming important aspects for all types of educational institutions. While student-centred learning is somewhat difficult to define in terms of its methodology and explicit content, it is a key to adapting to a more diverse student population and changing needs in terms of how education is conveyed.
In order to accommodate these ambitions, a re-examination of traditional pedagogy, including ways of how and where the learning and teaching processes take place, is needed. The Universities involved in this project as partner organisations, prepared piloting schemes for repurposing of educational buildings and spaces, in order to make the first steps and later replicate the model to a wider university environment.
In both universities, Kaunas and Ljubljana, the trainings are organised for the administrative staff and teachers to test and provide feedbacks to the manual developed within the project.
