Successful education leaders can anticipate the impact of new regulatory requirements, a change in regional working life or the implementation of new technology within their institution. Innopeda® for Managers offers the latest theories and tools for making the change.
The training aims to guide participants through a holistic development process and to implement innovation pedagogy in their educational institution. The development process includes intensive training on-site or online.
