Fostering learning with challenge-based innovation in higher education: case CERN Bootcamp
Keywords:CBI Challenge-based innovation, higher education, service design, design thinking, significant learning, CERN Bootcamp
This article presents findings on learning with challenge-based innovation (CBI) in higher education. It describes how different dimensions of Significant Learning are enhanced with challenge-based innovation among multidisciplinary students in higher education. It is based on a case study on designing and implementing a master’s-level course for learning service design by solving societal challenges related to United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDG) with challenge-based innovation at CERN IdeaSquare. As a result, this article describes how the case CBI enhances Significant Learning, and what is critical for instructors and organizers of challenge-based innovation.
