Description The challenge-based learning process allows students to experiment, make mistakes, and create new and innovative solutions. The methodology enables students not only to find the best solution through trials and errors, but also at the same time, to integrate different stakeholders’ experiences, to act in an uncertain environment, and to take responsibility for the impact of the decision on sustainable development. If you are interested in Challenge - based learning, this is the right place to start experiencing it.
