INFUSSE Educators’ Training Path (digital skills, tools and guidelines to “train-the-trainers”)

The virtual incubator’s structure and materials are designed to address the genuine needs of stakeholders, which were thoroughly examined during the earlier stages of the project.

We have implemented a self-paced learning approach for most tasks in the virtual incubation program. This flexibility allows participants to learn at their own convenience, accommodating their individual schedules.

Furthermore, in the scope of generating interest and maintaining focus among participants, engaging and interactive content was developed. The program will feature a diverse range of materials, including video lectures, case studies, real-life examples, and quizzes with immediate feedback. By incorporating these elements, we aim to keep participants actively interested and involved throughout their virtual incubation journey.

The training enhances educators’ digital competencies for delivering digital entrepreneurship training, including ICT/digital skills, group facilitation, and experiential learning, by empowering them with expertise and training skills to deliver the INFUSSE virtual incubation program effectively.

By this we enable educators to become INFUSSE Master trainers for our innovative virtual learning experience focused on digital entrepreneurship.

We enhance learning opportunities for the treated subjects by incorporating supplementary resources into each module, so that participants will get the opportunity to gather an extended knowledge of the subjects.

The virtual learning experience aims to address specific expectations and recommendations concerning topics covered during business creation. It will comprehensively cover the main aspects of the business creation process, innovation mindset, digital entrepreneurship, technology innovation utilization and ICT & digital skills:

  • explain business creation and its essential elements;
