Abstract: The main theme: Work-based learning in higher education has been emphasised while changes at work and in society have challenged knowledge and competencies. Learning in higher education is needed to be seen differently, and more attention is paid to students’ employability and the sustainability of learning and assessment. The approach to work-based learning in this symposium is based on the model of integrative pedagogy (Tynjälä 2008, 2013; Tynjälä et al 2014). In integrative pedagogy learning is e.g. ability to connect learner’s subjective experiences and working life skills with academic knowledge. The model integrates working and learning, thinking and action, and domain specific and generic skills. The aims and objectives: The symposium consists of three presentations which each have a perspective to following questions: 1 How the Mikkeli Meets Russia event (MMR) challenged the pedagogical model of the of Degree Programme of Cultural Management (Cma) in Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences? 2 How and what are the main issues when developing Social Services students’ self- assessment tools in ‘Learning in Volunteering’? 3 What are the associations between students’ employment during studies, study motivation, study progress and learning skills in higher education?
