27 Feb More than 400 participants in VIBES co-creation activities
From November 2022 to February 2023 VIBES consortium participated in a range of co-creation activities with different levels of students and stakeholders in order to fine-tune its learning outputs and maximise their transferability potential.
The first of these tasks involved online co-creation and development events involving high school, bachelor and master level students. Simulating actual multicultural virtual environment, 24 participants from high school, bachelor and master levels of education from Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, India, Chile and Poland engaged in four sessions where they attended virtual teamworking masterclass. Several offline events took place involving more than 200 students and 16 representatives of education community.
Consortium also exploited large education fair in Switzerland that gathered EU and non-EU education sector experts. The VIBES representatives managed to organise a poster session and discussion panel/focus group that allowed further inputs in fine-tuning of VIBES course, content development tool and learning hub. In total more than 130 teachers/professors from Croatia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Finland and Estonia have been engaged in co-creation of VIBES content through multiplier events and participation of consortium members in conferences and education fairs. Using network of its associate partner FHGR, consortium attracted about 30 enterprises to which it was able to present its workings and to request inputs for further fine-tuning.
Overall, more than 400 persons from at least 10 countries were involved in co-creation of VIBES outputs among which about 210 were students. The consortium received inputs from individuals from different EU countries and from those outside of EU that allowed it to tailor project outputs in a way that makes it relevant for education in virtual multicultural setting.
