Leading Organisation ->
OVERVIEW AND NEEDS ASSESSMENT :
The main objective of PR1 is to elaborate on the MOOW concept and develop key elements of the MOOW Framework (Guidelines for Organisers and a Playbook of MOOW Activities). The third component of the Framework—MOOW Online Platform—will be implemented as part of PR2 (see Project Diagram in Appendix A). The proposed MOOW model of digital learning and co-creation is a novel concept and therefore it requires elaboration and detail. A clear, coherent and well-thought-out MOOW model is essential for subsequent project success. The consortium partners have already gained a good understanding of the MOOW model and its principal facets—and this proposal reflects the current level of elaboration. However, there is still the need to address the many smaller details, possible omissions and inconsistencies in the model to ensure its smooth implementation. To support this cause, partners will conduct a literature/best practices review and focus groups, which will provide additional input for MOOW development. The enhanced MOOW model will lay the basis for the creation of the MOOW Framework which will serve to equip MOOW organisers with hands-on methods, guidelines, tools, scenarios, templates, and solutions to assist them in designing and delivering high-impact MOOWs on a variety of topics. The Framework will: – ensure that MOOWs are implemented in accordance with a common umbrella model – provide guidance and support to MOOW organizers on various functional aspects of MOOW planning, roll-out, and follow-up – contribute to the high and consistent quality of MOOW outputs and actions – contribute to a better use of human, financial and organisational resources needed to implement a successful MOOW – raise awareness of the MOOW and help build a positive MOOW public image across Europe PR1 will cover the first two of the three components of the MOOW Framework:
- Guidelines for Organisers will describe the MOOW concept and its core elements, explain MOOW’s various benefits, expected results and projected impacts, discuss the resources needed and other practical matters relevant to MOOW implementation (including digital resilience), and offer a set of practical recommendations (dos and don’ts) to MOOW planners and organisers. The Guidelines will also contain thematically arranged solutions of practical issues that are likely to arise during MOOW’s preparation or running.
- A Playbook of MOOW Activities will be a catalogue of model activities (supplemented by learning tools, aids and other materials) that the organisers can adapt and make use of during MOOW Bootcamps to enhance participants’ learning and co-creation. Organizers will have the flexibility to choose suitable activities as deemed fit for the purpose and specifics of their MOOWs. Both Guidelines and Playbook will be made available in seven European languages.
TARGET GROUPS :
The Guidelines will be directed at vicerectors, deans, vice-deans, unit heads and others in leadership roles who will be making key decisions in MOOW planning and implementation, and will likely act as MOOW coordinators, facilitators or supervisors. The Playbook will be directed at the HEI staff involved in the organisation and execution of MOOW activities (educators, middle-level administrators and managers working in departments or other units), as well as moderators, guest speakers and lectures in MOOW general public events.
INNOVATION, IMPACT AND TRANSFERABILITY :
MOOW is an experimental model, with the MOOW Framework at its core. A well-developed and robust Framework is crucial for steering the proper understanding and execution of MOOWs; it will also ensure the consistency of future project outcomes. The Framework will allow MOOW to be adaptable, thus ensuring a high degree of transferability. Furthermore, HEIs may make use of MOOW guidelines and tools to design, develop and introduce new formats of digital learning and collaboration.
