But if we want our students to aim for a different learning outcome, we must set new and different standards for the way we teach - and start walking the talk. Hear concrete examples of how to design different and inspiring learning environments based on the ideas of 21st century skills. Learn how the University College Copenhagen is inspiring both students and teachers to work more systematic and consistent with a balanced approach to 21st century skills as well as the standard curriculum.
