Innovation pedagogy has been noted as an excellent example how education can be modernized (European Commission, 2017).


A new pedagogical strategy

Innopeda is the answer for the educational sector to meet the challenges of the changing world. The old learning formulas are not adequate anymore.

Turku University of Applied Sciences has developed innovation pedagogy for near 15 years to provide competences needed in working life and to promote innovations, regional development and sustanaible future.

The core of Innovation pedagogy is to emphasize interactive dialogue bet­ween different actors within the educational organization and students as well as the surrounding working life and society.



Innovation competences

Right from the beginning, innovation pedagogy aimed at personal growth of an individual by believing in the capacity of each person to be the best expert on their future.

Students need good study skills to take an active and responsible role in their own learning. The methods used in delivering the education must be activating and versatile.

Students must have, alongside with the study field specific competences, innovation competences – the ability to participate into innovation processes. These crucial tools include critical thinking, creativity, initiative, teamwork and networking, which are all prerequisites for innovation.
