NUFFIC Conference, Hague, Netherlands

Development

On December 1st, 2022, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education and international knowledge (NUFFIC) celebrated 70 years and organised a conference entitled Meet the world, make the change, organised by the Hague University of Applied Sciences.

During the conference, RELAR project lead partners from STC group, demonstrated ROCSTAR, a new and innovative learning and teaching practice for the next generation professionals; type of personalised learning developed as a spin-off of the RELAR project.

During the last two years, the industry realised that many complex tasks can be executed remotely, leading to cost efficiency and reduction of carbon footprint. STC Group as a VET school faced the challenges of work-based learning, created by lockdowns and was looking for ways to ensure continuity. We identified assisted reality (AR) as a reliable technology to share remotely practical learning environments while boosting collaboration between technical universities and vocational education. AR offers an easy way to transform theoretical knowledge into practice.
