Impact-driven education is a living concept that is being constantly created and recreated. We depart from the idea that impact-driven education consists of principles that are formulated to serve as a guideline to curriculum designers and teachers, but it is not meant to be a book of rules. It has its roots in the ongoing dialogue around the role of the university in society which some authors defined as a purpose-driven university (Haski-Leventhal (2020).
For these reasons, Impact at the Core takes an evidence-based approach to implementing impact-driven education. By evaluating the educational models applied in the impact-driven education projects across our university, we learn which approaches are effective and fit the EUR context. This allows us to develop, test, refine and upscale models of impact-driven education. To support this systematic way of working, the Impact at the Core has an Evaluation Team of independent researchers.
