higher vocational education

❓How do I give sustainability, multiple value creation and broad prosperity a place in the core subjects of my (economic) education?

❓How do I teach students to make their own trade-offs in the pluralistic array of economic theories?

❓What transition must colleges themselves make to make this education a reality?

❗Op Wednesday, November 20 Economy Education Week and Newbee-fest are jointly organizing a day for teachers, researchers and administrators in higher economic education. The day will take place at Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Deventer.

At several themed tables, educators, researchers and students will discuss how they are already integrating themes such as meaning economy, multiple value and circularity into their education. They discuss the substantive and organizational bumps they encounter and share hopeful developments. The day closes or with a reflection led by the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences - how do we ensure that these topics are not just reflected in separate courses or minors, but are integrated and embedded in degree programs?
