    Associate Professor University of Oslo A feeling of belonging is achieved by allowing the members to make contributions to their community. This is how we can create a borderless university. Picture Kiron talks... imagining a borderless university https://youtu.be/eAGh0NILasY
  9. 17 Hacks What we learned about learning Change is a

    challenge. Make it easy for people. Some methods: • Develop interactive and lively communities for change and for better learning, where everyone feels they can contribute and can develop a sense of belonging • Be innovative with learning tools: use new certificates (badges, microcredentials) as recognition of all forms of learning, use OER to build up pooled learning resources and encourage collaboration
