    Practice into Policy: Entrepreneurial Learning

    12:30 pmRoyal Library of Belgium, Mont des Arts, 1000 Brussels

    Practice into Policy: Entrepreneurial Learning (PiP) is about putting the spotlight on entrepreneurial learning projects supported with EU funds.

    We want to collect as many project summaries as possible to help disseminate them and to gather the learning that has come out of each project. We want to show the value and impact of EU funding in this area, and make sure further projects can learn from what has gone before...

    Why submit?
    By submitting your project summary, you will be showcasing and disseminating your project to a European audience of policy makers and practitioners. We aim to raise the profile of your work and, if useful, link you into other networks and activities. You can meet and learn about other work happening in this field, helping you to develop your next project.

    How will your submissions be used?
    Your information will be used for two activities:
    1. Event: Practice into Policy Live: Entrepreneurial Learning 11 May 2017 12.30-17.30
    An event of around 100 people will hear about the results of this call, and we hope to present case studies as part of this. Register here
    2. Online Library: Practice into Policy Online: Entrepreneurial Learning
    We will collate all the case studies into an online resource - and promote this to practitioners, policy-makers and anyone interested in developing new projects. Submissions will be reviewed by a network of volunteer experts and practitioners.

    Thinking about coming to Brussels?
    The PiP event is timed to coincide with the upcoming European Commission launch for the European Competence Frameworks on 12 May - an opportunity to be in Brussels and engage at both events!

    Webinar: Teaching Social Entrepreneurship through Case Studies

    12:30pm - 1.30pmOnline

    In this webinar you will learn about Human Centered Design. HCD is a methodology developed by IDEO Inc., to explore and deploy needs and problems, where the user is central and intertwined in the process of design and development.

    In approaching Social Entrepreneurship, Christel de Maeyer and Geert Stox look at current problems in the fields of social, cultural and environmental areas. Usually one has to deal with different stakeholders in these fields; all parties need to be involved at a certain point in the design and development process of possible solutions. The HCD methodology starts with the users and their specific needs. During this research other stakeholders also come into the picture as all parties need to be on the same page in order to make social entrepreneurship succeed!

    In this webinar, they will explain the HCD methodology based on cases. One of the examples is ‘healthy food for people in need'. De Tinten is a service center in Belgium, Ghent, where refugees without papers, find help for their basic needs.

    Christel De Maeyer has an international career in the Digital Media space for over 25 years. She holds a Masters degree in Communication Science, New Media and Society in Europe from VUB Brussels, where she researched wearable devices and behaviour change. In 2008 she got involved in the Persuasive Technology Lab at Stanford University, working on behaviour design in the area of Peace Innovation and wearable tech. She is a researcher and lector at Artevelde University College in Ghent, Belgium and PhD Candidate in the User Centred Engineering Group at Eindhoven University of Technology

    Geert Stox is specialized in strategy, innovation and branding. With 25 years of experience in strategic and branding consultancy combined with setting up innovation projects all over the world, user analysis and psychological insight have become his main tool to create and implement relevant user solutions. He is a lector and researcher at Artevelde University College, Author of ‘Darwin on Networking’ (white paper), articles on the human system, branding, Darwinist brands, customer journeys, the open organisation and reputation management.

    Webinar: 3 Ways to Assess Entrepreneurial Learning

    12:30pm - 1.30pmOnline

    How do you assess perseverance, or communication and sales skills in the form of pitches to investors? How do you assess team work as important step towards being entrepreneurial? These are the questions that we will explore in an interactive webinar on assessment methods and tools in entrepreneurial learning.

    You will be introduced to three assessment methods and tools and see how they can be applied in the classroom. In addition, we want to collect your ideas how assessment in entrepreneurial learning should happen.

    Martin Lackeus is a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, and an experienced IT entrepreneur whose most recent company is an innovative supplier of a mobile app for education and work called LoopMe. LoopMe is a new kind of IT tool for people in individual and organisational development. Action and reflection gets intertwined through clear tasks that drive the learning and development process - a 'Social Learning Media' (SLM). LoopMe gives school teachers more engaged students that reflect deeper in a structured learning process.
