Making education more flexible

There are many facets to making the education system more flexible, such as providing a catalogue of available learning, modularisation, microcredentialing, standardisation, flexible capacity planning, learning outcomes, online learning (remote learning), hybrid forms of face-to-face and online learning, learning path-independent assessment, micromasters programmes, arranging organised collaborations and, of course, the concept of lifelong learning. There is an enormous diversity within the ingredients which we can use to make higher education more flexible.

The Flexible Education Zone has described four student routes to explain how education can be made more flexible. View the flyer about the student routes here.
