What we're about

Update: 24 Nov 2016

AKaSchool is a project from my journey on U.Lab hub in Tongeren. I joined U.Lab hub Tongeren because there were not enough participants to kick start U.Lab Liege.

Welcome to U.Lab hub for Liege. This meetup is inspired by the MITx course U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self on Edx.org.

This meetup group allow participants to this course to listen, share and learn from each others, acting as a sounding board to help them to progress with their ideas or projects.

A U.Lab hub is any physical space where U.Lab participants come together to learn and co-create using the frameworks and methods offered through the U.Lab MOOC. Hubs enhance the typical MOOC experience by serving as self-organized, decentralized, democratically run learning and doing environments.
