Nick Van Dam, Chief Learning Officer and Professor at IE University, will serve as Chair.

IE University has announced its new Center for Liquid Learning, which will serve to expand and facilitate knowledge sharing of IE’s unique and evidence-based education method.

The objective of the IE University Center for Liquid Learning is to facilitate knowledge sharing, feature liquid learning experiences, and build community. The Center will provide access to academics, scientists, researchers, and other professionals who are thought leaders in the field of education and are continuing to help evolve the liquid learning methodology.
