eLead Speed provides a set of highly usable outputs. A series of 12 short eLeadership courses (IO5) will be developed by the educators based on the eLeadership Observatory data (IO1) and the eLeadership Competence Framework (IO2) and facilitated by the Community of Practice (IO3) and the Trainers’ Toolkit: How to Design, Deliver and Evaluate eLeadership Curricula (IO4). The trainers will work collaboratively online to design the courses making use of OER and e-tivities. The courses will be stored and rendered available inside the OER repository (IO3) for free use by all trainers who are registered to the Community.
The selected methodology covers the entire cycle from industry requirements through occupational profiles to innovative educational content that provides relevant skills and competences and this way creates new opportunities for the industry but also creates new industry requirements for new training and courses. It follows the principles of incremental development and continuous improvement. The selected transdisciplinary, holistic approach aims to guarantee transferability and scalability of the results and to secure high levels of sustainability.
The project is structured in a highly cohesive work implementation configuration having a main coordinator and individual output/task coordinators in order to promote internal leadership and to drive active participation and inclusion in the project activities of each project member.
The task and responsibilities are distributed as follows:
Overall project management is performed by New Bulgarian University.
The e-Leadership Observatory, a software tool for state-of-the-art analysis, monitoring of the business needs and incremental curricula development (IO1) will be developed by New Bulgarian University with the contribution of all other partners who will ensure the gathering of local companies’ needs and perceptions on eLeadership skills gaps.
The development of the eLeadership Competence Framework and guidelines (IO2) will be led by Algebra with the support of all the other partners.
The Community of Practice (IO3) will be led by Gruppo Pragma. However, all the other partners will be involved in the implementation and use of the IO particularly for having the local trainers developing the online courses as envisaged in IO5.
The Trainer’s toolkit (IO4) will be led by MUAS. However, all the other partners will contribute in designing, delivering and evaluating the concerned IO via the short training envisaged for this IO and coordinated by ESI CEE.
The Online courses on e-leadership skills (IO5) will be developed by local trainers involved in Capacity Building activities, coordinated by ISTUD, and led at local level by the Bulgarian, Italian, Croatian and German partners.
The quality assurance process is led by ESI CEE and supported by NAVET as an associate partner. However, all partners will be involved in the quality assurance tasks.
The dissemination task is led by the Digital National Alliance. All partners will be involved into its co-creation as well as in the constant dissemination tasks, including the organisation of the multiplier events, which will be monitored by DNA.
