Abstract

Abstract: Within DIFUCH, we are developing innovative challenge-based pedagogies, tools and platforms for the virtual delivery of a joint programme within a groundbreaking-breaking and flexible academic structure in Europe. This Erasmus+ project is focused on delivering new multi-disciplinary, transnational, cross-sectional future skills-orientated modules and learning pathways that address societal challenges. In this paper, we present the current work of DIFUCH to develop an innovative programme underpinned by Challenge Based Learning (CBL) that addresses local and global societal challenges and strengthens interactions between education, research, and external stakeholders for a positive effect on our communities. This project facilitates the improvement of learning outcomes vis-à-vis university learners’ perception of social responsibility, their ability to deal with complex societal challenges from social and economic stability to global warming, their ability to put knowledge into practice, team building and communications skills.
