Description/Abstract

The term “agile” came to different areas of our life from software development. It promotes constant communication between the stakeholders of a process in order to identify necessary changers and implement them as soon as possible. The poster discusses how an agile approach to education/learning differs from a traditional approach. With agile learning, it could be much easier to adjust the syllabus to students’ and business’s needs with the help of developed interaction in flat hierarchy classes. Agile educators play the roles of facilitators who evaluate students during the whole year. The results of the poster project gives insights into which approach to prioritize when thinking of a more effective and beneficial strategy for stakeholders to organize an educational process as well as possible obstacles on the way to adopting such a new agile approach.
