- Students and professionals have control over, and responsibility for, their own development. They have the freedom to create their own educational programme, with products from within and outside their own institution. Lifelong development is the new normal.
Flexibility in education
Organising flexible(er) education requires the agility of an educational organisation. What challenges do institutions face?
- Setting up an educational organisation
- Presentation of educational offerings of own and other institutions
- Simple registration process with 1 identity
- Digital certificates for acquired knowledge and experience

What does flexible(er) education require from the educational organisation?
Organising education in a flexible way has a major impact on the organisation of educational logistics processes. If you start working with flexibility and as a result change the way you organise your education, this will automatically lead to adjustments in education logistics.
