Why the ASIS trainings?
The ASIS (Alpine Social Innovation Strategy) project aims to launch, develop and promote Social Innovation (SI) as a new vision of innovation in the Alpine space area.
We want to make an impact in all alpine countries by disseminating the project results to relevant stakeholders so that actors implementing social innovation projects can benefit from the concrete findings of the project. For this reason, the project developed online trainings which will transfer new knowledge created in the thematic work packages of the project. These materials are accessible to the public on the ASIS platform.
The online trainings are designed in a way that all interested stakeholders can go through them independently and benefit from the learning experience at their own pace. They consist of a presentation, one or more videos to consolidate the training content as well as a quiz which allows trainings participants to test the knowledge they acquired through following the training.
Whom are the trainings for?
The ASIS online trainings are designed to disseminate project findings to Public Authorities, sectorial agencies, business support organisations, companies as well as higher education and research institutes. Each training entails a short introduction describing the objectives and target groups of the respective training.
How are the materials developed?
All ASIS trainings were developed in a joint participatory approach. Based on the project’s research activities, the ASIS project partners defined 8 topics for online trainings. Each partner developed a concept for their respective training topic.
In February 2020, all ASIS partners came together in Karlsruhe, Germany, to discuss the partners’ concepts in an interactive workshop. Stakeholders from different regions were also invited to provide input to the proposed concepts. All partners proceeded to develop their trainings with the support of the work package leader Steinbeis 2i and feedback from other partners.
During a 3-month testing phase, the trainings were submitted to a selected group of stakeholders who provided feedback to the developed materials. The feedback has been evaluated by the means of a grid analysis which has served as a basis for a final improvement of the materials.
All trainings are available on the ASIS platform in 5 languages (English, French, Italian, German, Slovenian).
