Topic of Speech: “Tampere3 Smart Campus Innovation Lab (SCIL) – Building Smarter Education”

Smart Campus Innovation Lab (SCIL) is a Tampere3-wide (Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Tampere University of Technology & University of Tampere) learning and innovation platform – and an open-source development community. In SCIL, students from various fields with diverse cultural backgrounds, together with higher education professionals and other partners, carry out projects focusing on smart campus development as part of their studies.

In our presentation, we will discuss the pedagogical approach and relevance of SCIL. What does it mean to learn and work in smart campus projects? What type of projects do we run and with whom? How do we help improve the higher education community in Tampere? We will also take a look into student experiences from the summer 2017 SCIL projects, and discuss the future steps that we plan to take, as well as the long-term goals that we aim for.
