e-Course 1 - Co-Creative Workshop Organisation and Preparation
This e-Course provides information on the organisation and preparation of Co-Creative Workshops. It touches briefly on the Co-Creative Workshop Support that is part of the U4IoT support services. The Co-Creative Toolkit can be used to co-create Internet of Things (IoT) solutions together with stakeholders and end-users. An complete overview of the guidelines for the workshop is described in the Co-Creative Workshop Support Handbook. The preparation of a Co-Creative Workshop can however be quite overwhelming, this e-Course therefore provides a couple of lessons with information on supporting workshop organisers and facilitators to overcome well known hurdles in the process.
Defining an unambiguous objective for your workshop is the key to gain relevant insights, just as defining the context and selecting the corresponding participants. Overcoming communication barriers can be quite a challenge and can as well be of great influence on the course of the workshop. Many of these aspects can be overcome in the preparation phase of your workshop and doing a pilot upfront can give tremendous insight in possible upcoming hurdles. Making participants feel at ease is even so important to break the ice and kick-start your role as facilitator.
