Workshop for modular training toolkit for students engaged in ENHANCE activities

5th November 2021


The workshop is aimed at supporting preparation of the report on modular training toolkit. The toolkit will be developed for students engaged in ENHANCE activities in a participatory process with the students.

Topics of the workshop will include:

  • Co-creating of the events and workshops by students.
  • Co-researching and undertaking scholarship projects by students with staff.
  • Students' participation in course design review committees.
  • Co-assessing by students.
  • Co-designing courses and curricula by students.
  • Co-evaluation of courses by students.

What is a „modular training toolkit”?
The training toolkit contains instructions (manual) and tools (e.g. logic model/theory of change, workshop designs, policy and procedures, program evaluation) to build the activity. In this case, the activity is the co-creation of teaching and learning at ENHANCE university. The modularity of the toolkit allows one to complete sections or modules of training according to one's time plan and availability.

What is co-creation?
The co-creation is the process of creating something together (Björklund 2017). Together, that is, with the participation of interested stakeholders. This approach is particularly effective when designing products that address (often partially) ill-defined problems, represent an innovative approach to the problem, or are an idea driving future transformations. The co-creation approach in design allows the product to be tailored to the needs of stakeholders.
The event format will include: coffee table, brainstorming, prototyping, discussion.

The ENHANCE Alliance consists of 7 leading European technical universities: Berlin University of Technology, RWTH in Aachen, the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, the University of Technology in Milan, the University of Technology in Valencia and Warsaw University of Technology.

The Alliance educates a total of 245,000 students at the universities and employs over 41,300 people. Over the past 5 years, 4,400 employees and students of ENHANCE have participated in various exchange programs between universities being part of the Alliance. The partners obtained a total of over 4,050 patents.

The aim of the project is systemic, structural and permanent cooperation between the universities of the Alliance, which will lead to the development of new solutions that go beyond the existing models of cooperation.

The specific objectives adopted by ENHANCE universities include: the introduction of innovative teaching methods on a large scale, facilitating students to choose subjects from the offer of partner universities, creating a system facilitating the mobility of the academic community and reducing bureaucratic barriers.

Universities participating in the project will cooperate with associated partners – enterprises, city offices, student organizations, research networks, foundations and non-profit organizations.
