The Place

This tool brings a fresh breeze to the ELT world and invites all creative, enthusiastic and entrepreneurially-thinking teachers and trainers to join the Learn&Lead stream of innovations that have been developed in the Erasmus+ projects since 2010.

Design Sprint is a team tool of strategic innovations which offers innovative and creative solutions of challenging problems and their testing within just a few days. It focuses on the product and service development that are of high value to customers.

By “learning by doing” we practically learn how to propose, prototype, verify products, functions and services such as Uber, Slack, Blue Bottle Coffee and others.
