STILLLearning - Innovative Training Solutions for Learning at Work in Disruptive Industries

"STILLLearning" analyzes the demand of key competences in industries strongly experiencing digital disruption, investigates the factors that support employees’ work-based learning and upskilling, and by establishing learning ecosystem workshops, it creates an open idea bank for innovative work-based learning solutions, on which to design and implement an open hypervideo-based collaborative MOOC.

Based on European Commission’s New Skills Agenda the project analyzes and documents the demand of key competences including both generic and field-specific competences in industries, that are strongly experiencing digital disruption (disruptive industries). STILLLearning project focuses on improving the competences of HR-officers, work-place tutors, vocational trainers and teachers, and other educational professionals in order to support learning at work.

STILLLearning project investigates what are the factors that challenge and support employees’ work-based learning and upskilling pathways at work, and analyses current learning practices in industries. Project also identifies the most relevant key competences needed in disruptive industries. STILLLearning project establishes learning ecosystem workshops of employers, employees and adult educators from different industries and countries, and encourages the learning ecosystems to collaborate, cross-fertilize and co-create an idea bank for innovative learning and training solutions for work-based learning. Open idea bank of innovative training practices at work is visualized and presented in an open digital format (OER) at the project website. Idea Bank presents novel, easy to use solutions for facilitating learning at work. From the basis of an analysis and open idea bank, the project designs and implements an open hypervideo-based cMOOC (collaborative massive open online course) for competence developers in industries and vocational and adult educators. The HVcMOOC offers modular, competence-based and pedagogically designed training program of planning, guiding and assessing innovative learning and training solutions at work in disruptive industries.

The improved competences of competence developers, HR-officers, workplace tutors, vocational trainers and teachers, and other educational professionals, accelerate upskilling the employees of disruptive industries and strengthen their professional identity, wellbeing and employability. The impacts of the competence development increase disruptive industries’ human capital, innovativeness, capacity and resilience to cope in transformation. Overall, the project is built with a holistic approach in developing the competences of educators and other personnel to support learning at work in disruptive industries.

Method

We perform the analysis of competence requirements and learning at work in disruptive industries through a series of Delphy workshops with employers, coupled with interviews with employees and adult educators and a questionnaire for employees. The analysis of these data will allow us to organize workshops with different stakeholders to co-create and idea bank of innovative learning and training solutions. Finally, we design and implement a hypervideo-based collaborative MOOC and proceed with assessing it.
