Julkaisun pysyvä osoite on
Learning by Developing Action Model (LbD) was developed at Laurea University of Applied Sciences at the beginning of the year 2000 to answer to the three main tasks given to the universities of applied sciences by the ministry of education and culture in Finland: educa-tion, regional development, and research, development and innova-tion (RDI). This publication addresses the current state and ongoing developments of the LbD action model. Higher education is expe-cted to prepare students for the future and to provide competences for dealing with transforming society and working life. The publica-tion shows that the LbD action model creates competences needed in the uncertain future. In addition to that, this publication proves that the LbD action model effectively promotes Laurea and its stu-dents and staff to flexibly adapt to the transition of working life and actively influence the development of the region. We hope that you are inspired by articles in this publication which cover a number of contemporary aspects of LbD action model.
