Fox, Anne: CoDe-FLITE: Concurrent Design Framework for eLearning in IT Entrepreneurship

Proposal for an online cross-sectoral training across industry and HE to promote entrepreneurial skills by business planning

Cloud created by:

The dCCDF project will address the following 2 factors by developing a training for both HE and industry-based students to raise their entrepreneurial awareness and promote bilateral knowledge transfer through collaboration between the two groups of learners.
1. HE graduates need more than just their degree to access employment (EU ref)
2. The potential for knowledge transfer between HE and industry is not fully realized. (EU ref)
Concurrent design (CCD) is a well-structured process method for improving cooperation in groups representing different interests such as:
• Participants in an EU project, including various university departments and companies.
• A group creating an entrepreneurship course including teachers, employers and students
• Students in an entrepreneurship course where they will link the interests of universities and companies in preparing a business plan.
CCD is therefore THE process tool 
• For our project management
• Entrepreneurship course development and
• The tool for students to use within the course
In a globalised world it is increasingly routine to collaborate  online therefore the proposed training will be offered online. In the UnderstandIT project, involving some of the dCCDF project partners, the highly structured synchronous CCD process was adapted for distributed teams. which the xx project will use in the three areas listed above.
The training will be 
offered online
comprise a mixture of HE and industry-based learners
focus first on personal development plans 
require small groups of learners to become familiar with their respective institutions’ innovations
progress to a business development plan
include an internal dissemination plan &
end with a peer-reviewed online presentation 
HE and industry-based learners will be grouped together across Europe and will use the dCCD process. Their plans will use the Osterwalder business model framework which has been developed for both personal and business development.

Hi Anne, I'm happy to contribute to this project.  It seems quite large.  I wonder if we could /should focus on some part of it or just see how far we get by tacking the whole thing top-down.

Which bit(s) appeal to you most?

I would guess that you would want to concentrate on the training. As I said elsewhere I am happy to go with the flow as everything is potentially useful to me.

The mechanism for collaboration between HE students and industry-based learners is probably of most interest to me as this aspect will certainly have application on some things I'm involved in.  So if that or something round it could form a coherent chunk of work that we could carve of and focus on that would be great.  But really I'm very open to other ways of tackling this.  Maybe also Liz of Tony have some thoughts.

Anne,

though we don’t have industry based students the concept of a course on  entrepreneurship is something I’d be interested in exploring, but not heard of CCD before. Are there some articles you can suggest to read?

There is the definitive article here:

and shorter, chattier descriptions here:

http://annefox.eu/?s=ccd&searchsubmit=  I recommend the last one in this collection of about 5 blog posts as a starting point.

Hi Anne, Tony and Liz,

If I understand Yishay's email ("dreambazaar and team up!") correctly we need to add a cloud for our proposed project to the "Olds Mooc Project teams" cloudscape (http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloudscape/view/2470).

I wonder if we should also try to arrange some sort of live chat so we can start to get some sort of handle on what we plan to do.  Would that be something for "Google hangouts"?

Willing to give Google Hangout a go if we can find a mutually acceptable time. Yes, you're right about needing another cloud or can we just assign an existing cloud to another cloudscape? At this point my cloud skills break down!

I'm away all day tomorrow at a one-day conference in Copenhagen which is a 5 hour each way trip.

Just for the heck of it I've added this cloud to the "OLDS MOOC project teams" cloudscape.  I'm not enitrely sure if we are meant to do that or to create another overview cloud for the project.

Thurs of Fri might be difficult this week for me to find time but I think Tony has some time then when he might be available.  Though it would be good if we could all meet.  Perhaps we need a Doodle to find a time?
