VIVES University of Applied Sciences is striving for future-oriented education. Students are prepared for the professions of tomorrow by confronting them with the complexity they will have to face as professionals. “Connected curriculum” and “blended learning” are the two central educational concepts that shape this ambition. Both are confirmed in the educational policy plan of VIVES and are supported and stimulated in policy terms. In this article, we will elaborate on both concepts and explain how an integrated support policy was elaborated based on them.
