Multiplier Events

United Kingdom

Ulster University hosted their Multiplier Event for the for the Erasmus+ KA2 Project CONNECTEDLEARNING@YW across two days with one virtual and one face-to-face. This approach was taken as, despite the ongoing pandemic, there was some opportunity for small groups to get together face to face. The first session took place online via Microsoft Teams on Friday 8th October 2021 whilst the second was hosted face-to-face on 14th October 2021 on the Magee Campus of Ulster University. The attendees ranged across different backgrounds, age ranges and genders which represented the diversity and inclusion that the connected Learning project represents and champions.

On both days the attendees were provided with a very interactive session by both Dr Bradley-McCauley and Dr Cullen. The attendees were provided with a presentation on the idea behind Connected Learning, who the consortium were and what we have discovered and produced. We presented the project website to share some of our headlines and progress updates and then we provided attendees with a practical tour of the platform from the learner perspective. The feedback on both days was very positive with comments such as “very informative session”, “excellent project” and “such a brilliant project”. The queries related to types of learning sessions that can be accessed and also how this connected learning platform has relevance right across young people through to older people in society to access different skills and learning at a style, pace and level that suits their needs.

The two-day event was very successful as it allowed us to target over 60 people in total to share the outcomes of the Connected Learning platform. It also helped inform us about our what next and fully realise just how much potential this project has. Indeed, the attendees loved the idea of a visual map being available.

This Multiplier Event provided an opportunity for Ulster University to gather feedback and discuss and involve target groups including their valuable opinions on Consortium’s work.

Italy

The Multiplier event for the Erasmus+ KA2 Project CONNECTEDLEARNING@YW was organised by The European Digital Learning Network in two different days.

The first session took part at Dlearn premises, in Milan, on the 28th September 2021.

The event was conducted into a small and limited group of attendees who were informed about ConnectedLearning mission, products and long-term objectives.

The programme of the day included a warm welcoming of the participants by Dlearn staff, the introduction to the project and its consortium. Secondly, participants were told the whole process of products creation of the project: our research on digital Youth work across partners’ countries, our produced modules, our app and mapping platform and our effort to influence policy makers through the scaling up at EU level – the petition, declaration, Campaign and memoranda. Participants were invited to check out the platform and the app and to choose a Module on which try to do some exercises. The session was closed with a Q&A session.

The second session, due to pandemic restrictions, was organised online as a free webinar on the 15th October 2021 within the context of ‘Erasmus Days’ 2021.

ConnectedLearning@YW was presented and promoted to online attendees during the online event “Il Cittadino digitalmente Competente” (translation: The digitally literate citizen) focusing on social inclusion of people through digital tools, skills and competences in Europe.

As in the previous session, also the October’ one witnessed the introduction and presentation of the project, its goals and products as well as a solid promotion of the Petition and Campaign in order to assure sustainability for ConnectedLearning@YW.

The multiplier event offered also another opportunity to discuss and involve target groups and gather their valuable opinions and feedbacks on Consortium’ work.

Germany

CGE-Erfurt hosted a project table introducing participants to the Connected Learning project and its outputs. A QR code was available for participants to scan and to download the app and at the opening ceremony, education stakeholders introduced the value of social enterprises and opened a round of discussion of the particular value for young communities of social entrepreneurship.

Over 120 participants engaged with the Connected Learning table, and within the group discussions on social entrepreneurship with education stakeholders. Participants were invited to share contact details with each other to help form a lasting network of civic actors in the community interested in promoting the various outputs of the project, from e-learning opportunities to the Connected Learning Map.

This event was supported by inputs from local social enterprises run by young migrants, which allowed the theoretical input of the Connected Learning project to be complemented by real-life examples of young entrepreneurs in the local community, with reflections on the skills and competencies a young person needs to drive a social enterprise.

Young people with concepts for social initiatives were also invited to engage with the broad set of supports available for young people through a variety of local projects, including the e-learning possibilities available on the Connected Learning platform. Local organizations and education stakeholders were also presented the possibility of placing their outputs onto the common Connected Learning Map to boost their reach.

On the 27th of June 2021, Emphasys Centre conducted the Multiplier event for the Erasmus+ KA2 Project CONNECTEDLEARNING@YW at Café Gerolemos, in Omodos village, Limassol District, between 10:00-14:00. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the event was conducted into smaller groups where small groups of people had the opportunity to get informed about the project and its results.

Each session began with welcoming the participants and introducing the project. We explained the idea behind it, introduced our partners who have been involved from the beginning, and presented the results from our research. Following this, we presented the six modules that were developed during the projects’ lifetime (Business Principles, Marketing, Planning & Budgeting, Innovative Learning, Soft Skills, and Thinking ahead). To the participants that were interested in a particular Module, a hard copy of a Booklet was given.

After the presentation of each Module, the CONNECTEDLEARNING website was presented, where all information about the project is uploaded and also the project platform. For participants who wanted to access via phone, the platform and its materials are available as a mobile phone application, to which our younger participants had shown a particular interest.

Before the closing of each session, questionnaires were handed out and time was allowed for Questions and Answers or any discussion the participants wanted to elaborate on.
