Abstract

This chapter illustrates a research focused on how to effectively implement the Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) approach in a Higher Education Institution (HEI) in the UK. The challenge was linked to contemporary research conducted by a group of academics; the initiative explored how digital technologies can positively impact the local economy. The project was titled ‘UoL4.0 Challenge’ and it proved that designing and implementing CBL educational environments can increase students’ propensity to work actively and proactively. The exercise also suggested that CBL may support students in the application of their academic skills and digital capabilities to support their communities. This text presents a description of the case and a reflection on lessons learned, to provide guidelines for other educators and policymakers interested in implementing I4.0 educational initiatives at the local or national levels. This paper suggests that CBL may play a fundamental role in implementing the triple-helix model of innovation.
