Catering and Food sector (kitchen) EU PROJECTS IEE: Sustainable mobility Grundtvig: Language for migrants Leonardo: Training for SMEs Francesca Carmagnola This is what we do. But how we do it? Our challenge: creating partecipation and improving collaboration and knowledge exchange between coworkers and between students. PARTECIPATION

Between co-workers fosters innovation Between students supports learning Francesca Carmagnola Partecipation between co-workers fosters innovation

Partecipation as collaboration between co-workers Collaboration is a process defined by the recursive interaction of knowledge and mutual learning between two or more people who are working together, in an intellectual endeavor, toward a common goal which is typically creative in nature. (Wikipedia) ) Francesca Carmagnola The process of collaboration is often associated with teamwork The main idea of collaboration is of working together

sharing of planning, making decisions, solving problems, setting goals, assuming responsibility, working together cooperatively, communicating, and coordinating openly (Baggs & Schmitt, 1988). Collaborative Process Team Creation Idea Generation Decision-Making Work or Production Evaluation Francesca Carmagnola

A proper team should be made of: Small numbers of people - < 12 Complementary skills in group members Common purposes for working Performance goals agreed upon Shared working approaches Mutual accountability amongst all members (Katzenbach and Smith) How to improve the collaboration in a team

to achieve better performance results? Francesca Carmagnola Improving collaboration requires a cultural change OLD STYLE CULTURE NEW STYLE CULTURE Command and control

Consensus-driven Formal and closed Informal and open Fear of making mistakes Explore and evaluate Francesca Carmagnola

as well as a behavioural change I interact with the others when I have the time Old-style worker New-style worker

I use only the e-mail I interact with the others often and self-initiated I use several tools Francesca Carmagnola

Team creation = connecting people Community of Practice A Community of Practice is a network of individuals with common problems or interests who get together to explore ways of working, identify common solutions, and share good practice and ideas. (Steve Dale Director Semantix) Francesca Carmagnola

Communities of Practice: features CoP are not a way to bring new knowledge into an organisation, but an opportunity to support and increase the knowledge that is already available in the organisation. CoP put you in touch with like-minded colleagues and peers CoP allow you to share your experiences and learn from others CoP allow you to collaborate and achieve common outcomes CoP accelerate your learning CoP provide the opportunity to innovate and create new ideas starting from existing knowledge Francesca Carmagnola

Communities of Practice in ENGIM Meetings facilitator Pre-defined duration Pre-defined number of meetings Clear action plan with activities Pre-defined shared goals to be achieved Pre-defined maximum budget Different roles, competencies and responsabilities None chief but only shared leadership Francesca Carmagnola

The meeting facilitator states that We didnt get out the average of our competencies, but the preeminences of every single member have been brought to the light Open network Preserved working environment How the success is possibile? Shared goals and common interests

Greatly motivated team Francesca Carmagnola Which tools to foster collaboration into CoP? Francesca Carmagnola Basic tools Email / Mailing List Telephone Meeting

Presentation Tools Document storage and exchange Then web 2.0 and social software came providing greater support for innovation Social software provide the infrastructure for innovation (Steve Dale Director Semantix) Francesca Carmagnola

Social software provide the infrastructure for innovation in ENGIM Francesca Carmagnola Main outcomes Behavioural change: thanks to the easiness of the partecipating tools every member of the CoP partecipates in the creation of content Reduction of the digital divide Continued and growing enthusiasm for collaboration Many

self-organising networks Francesca Carmagnola Dont forget that our customers are the students! Partecipation between students supports learning 51% students study both on books and on web materials. Only 41% of them use only books! (AIE Research, 2010)

Students are no more passive but active protagonists of the creation of content to be shared. Tools like Blog, Wikis, Podcast, RSS are commonly used. Francesca Carmagnola And the trainers? The trainers need to change their role from dispenser of information to generator of knowledge Young students are bewildered when they come in a typical environment of the XIX century that still characterizes the

educational establishment Learning can benefit from sharing of content and free access to information, typical of the new frontiers of Web 2.0 The biggest challenge, for trainers, is to interact with the digital generation. Francesca Carmagnola Which tools to foster partecipation between students? Francesca Carmagnola

Social software provide the infrastructure also for supporting learning in ENGIM Francesca Carmagnola Main outcomes Still to be confirmed but We are still alive and in good health!
