The case studies and examples provided in the following section demonstrate the versatility of Living Labs. For every individual initiating such approaches and in each institution the framing and starting point will differ. These examples have been provided as examples of varying practices, not ‘best’ practice as it is essential that in the context of developing and implementing learning and research opportunities and innovative pedagogies, organisational cultures, policies and practices will affect how this looks at an individual institution level.
The purpose of this series of case studies is to share learnings from across the breadth of this diverse sector. Each case study provides an overview of implementation methods, institutional prioritisation and key learnings. These aim to be honest accounts from individuals working in tertiary education institutions to support others in creating their own appropriate pathway for initiating and developing Living Lab style approaches within their institutions.
