The Erasmus+ KA2 project CREST – Creative Repurposing of Educational Spaces for Innovative Student-centred Environments has been approved. UBC is one of the partners of this project, run by the University in Ljubliana.
Re-purposing of the public buildings and spaces is becoming increasingly important task in various public institutions (municipalities, higher education institutions, national governments, etc.).
The aim of the project is to address the challenges of HE institutions in the processes of re-purposing of educational buildings and spaces. Their main challenge addressed through the project is the lack of professional expertise when it comes to creating and sustaining learning environments that support student centered learning and implement principles of learning ergonomics.
The activities will include the mapping of existing practices models of repurposing educational buildings and spaces, creation of a model for HE institutions on how to implement re-purposing that is adapted to the contemporary needs and their piloting in the partner countries and finally dissemination and advocacy.
The project will be implemented in 2020-2022 by 6 partners from 5 countries: Slovenia (University of Ljubljana), Lithuania (MB HOMO EMINENS, VDU), Croatia (Culture Hub), Poland (UBC) and Belgium (Out of the Box International)
