* Welcome on behalf of the organizers and four strategic initiatives on learning:

Aalto Online Learning (A!Ole) Our goal is to develop, explore and evaluate novel advanced technical solutions and pedagogical models for online/blended learning

All Well? Wellbeing project Our goal is to enhance the success of students by advancing study support, teaching, learning services and focusing support on study capabilities.

Programme Attractiveness  Our goal is to create and develop concrete tools that help the programmes to monitor their performance, evaluate their content and to enhance their quality. We also aim to learn what makes programmes attractive and show the programmes how they can collaborate and share best practices in order to become and stay attractive.

Learning Challenge Aalto Our goal is to inspire, equip and support students on their way towards working life. Tomorrow’s game changers are those who create value to companies and communities.
