How to facilitate and support learning that leads to impact that lasts? The High Impacts learning that Lasts Model

Abstract: If futurologist are correct and 60% of the jobs in the near future do not exist yet, then higher education faces an interesting challenge: how to prepare for an unknown future? Starting from the participants’ memorable learning experiences, I will introduce the High Impact Learning that Lasts model and its scientific foundations. This is the step towards a  team-based knowledge sharing assignment on participants’ positive experiences with the HILL model and challenges faced.
