Preparing students for the welfare society of tomorrow Future professionals within public and private enterprises need new competencies to meet the demands of the future and be active participants in the further development of a sustainable welfare system. The reproduction of knowledge is still important. But in addition, students must be prepared for a future in which they are able to find solutions to problems not yet discovered. It is necessary to combine the use of new technology to acquire the formal knowledge with a new pedagogical approach which will radically develop a whole new creative mind-set among our students? At University College Lillebaelt (UCL), which has approximately 7000 students, new innovative pedagogic strategies are being used in which UCL cooperates with private companies and public institutions in so-called triple helix partnerships to find new solutions to challenges to the welfare system and based on real life case studies. As part of their curriculum, students of all ages participate in innovation and development projects of real life products and services in order for the education system to prepare students for new job requirements. These new abductive learning processes inspired by innovation theory will be significant and attractive elements in the education system of tomorrow. They will develop a new and innovative mind-set in our students and they will support private and public companies in the development of new and sustainable products and services to meet the challenges currently confronting the welfare economies.
