Co-creation as leverage for higher education

Generally speaking, higher education establishments can use co-creation as leverage for pursuing future-oriented routines. Co-creation enables institutions to teach their students VUCA competencies and even co-creation skills. Co-creation enables teachers to reflect on their subject matter and can support the nexus between research and education. Furthermore, pooling strengths can generate rationalisation benefits (infrastructure, expertise, staff…), with the ultimate goal of optimising the range of basic programmes and permanent education for students, course participants, and employees (within the framework of lifelong learning).

VUCA stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous: four features of the rapidly changing world.
