Duration

The awareness programme is programmed to be carried out in a total of 5 sessions. In each session a block of the programme will be worked. Each block corresponds to each phase of Design Thinking.

The program is structured in 5 sessions of 2 hours of duration that will be carried out throughout 5 weeks every Wednesday afternoon after the end of the classes.

Material

Description

In order to carry out the activities in a dynamic way following the process of Design thinking, the programme will be carried out with a maximum of 30 people, who will work in small groups (6 people per group) with the exception of the activities of the last session which will be carried out all together.

Each teacher will be given a file where they will find the different readings for each block and the steps they must follow to carry out the different activities.

At the end of the programme, on the one hand, each participant will have to fill in a rubric in order to reflect on the learning they have acquired in each of the phases and, on the other hand, they will find a scale of assessment to evaluate whether they have personally developed the competences that characterise an entrepreneur or not.

Finally, teachers will be able to reflect and write suggestions about the entire process followed by them in order to make future improvements to the programme.

This programme has been produced by Ainhoa Ituño Martín (participant of EIPTE project) and Jon Hernández Fernández, both last year students of the Primary Education degree of the University of Deusto.

Description

Creaction! is an online training platform developed by the University of Deusto to foster entrepreneurial skills. It is a journey that starts when someone invites you to join it. There are different roles: 

  • Travelers are those who join the journey once they receive an invitation from their Guide. Although there are individual exercises, the journey is designed to be made simultaneously in a group. 
  • Guide is the person who invites travelers to join Creaction! This person has previously completed the journey. He or she will shake and motivate the travelers during their adventure and will keep track the traveler's work. 
  • Hosts are experts from the University of Deusto who have created the Creaction! Methodology. They will help guides in their tasks as journey shakers. 

The journey concludes with a final project that will make the change either in or out your organization. The topic of the projects can be either defined by the Guide or by the same traveler.

Creaction! has a clear practical approach, and the best sample of this is that to conclude the journey, each traveler has to share his or her project following the Design For Change methodology.
