Professionals increasingly face changes and challenges that require adaptability and innovation. The Adapt at Work research project investigates the development of the expertise needed for this, often referred to as adaptive expertise. Is there a difference between professional domains? How can we measure this? Which educational interventions work? How do we design work-based learning (WBL) environments and learning pathways that support this development? And how can we integrate this into higher education? To answer these questions we shuttle between theory and practice to discover what works, for whom, how and under what circumstances.

We are working together on this 3.5-year research project in a consortium of 6 universities of applied sciences and 5 universities.
