Assignments Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Spring 2021
>>> Back to seminar overview
Our course consists the following elements:
- The international online course with synchronous online sessions on Tuesdays from 16 30 – 18 00 CET and additional tutored online sessions. Our class meets weekly from March 16 to June 9, 2020
- A cooperation process with a local community which can be either
- a community attached to your local university environment
- a community attached to one of our partner universities. We will connect to these European and Middle East communities through the internet by virtual collaboration. We will try to make this as intensive as possible so you can gain a virtual interculturalexperience. Under normal conditions, we would have offered on-site workshops in Estonia, Romania and Lebanon this year. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that the pandemic situation will allow for on site visits.
The online course aims at preparing and accompanying students who are involved in designing community-based innovation ideas. The synchronous lectures on Tuesdays will provide you with theory and methods associated with core topics such as community – what they are and how to work with them, innovation, transformation, systems thinking, design thinking, business modelling and impact evaluation, to name only the most relevant. In addition, the Tuesday sessions will provide room for digital exchange with local stakeholders and community members.
The tutored online sessions provide room for you and your teams to engage with those theories and methods. We can apply them to the specific community context you are dealing with, either in your workshop areas or in your local university context. In addition, you can collaborate with students from our international CLLC network and learn from their perspectives on your issues and ideas.
The CLLC programme has four compulsory assignments and they are integrated a learning process. All assignments require your active participation in the tutored online classes and/or on site in your community lab. In addition, critical engagement with CLLC theories and methods is necessary.
Below we give you an overview of the compulsory course deliverables. Please check the links for more details of the assignments.
