The society is rapidly changing requiring different skills, knowledge, and attitudes from our students, which results in a need for innovation in our approach to learning and education. Especially during the COVID-19 outbreak, higher educational institutes faced major challenges, such as teaching in an online classroom. This disruption due to the COVID-19 regulations caused a renewed interest in alternative methods of education. The differences and similarities between distance, blended, and face-to-face education methods have been placed under a magnifying glass. Educational institutions were forced to implement different methods with little previous experience in the respective methods. They seemed ill-prepared for major shocks to their traditional way of doing things. How can education be transformed/innovated to make us all more sustainable and resilient? This crisis shows that we are not on top of things; we are ambushed and reactive. So how can we (in the present) determine what we should learn to be prepared for the future and how can education be changed so that we learn these things more quickly? This is not only about new methods/technologies but also about innovation of the learning process. The question is how to use these experiences to create future proof education and how certain innovations in education play a role in this transition. Innovation in all its forms (digital innovation, business model innovation, product/process innovation, etc.)
