back to ACTIVE training project

The goal of training activities in ACTIVE is to achieve the transfer of knowledge and best practices within the project as well as (principally) outside the project. ACTIVE training program is aimed at training individuals and groups on the topics that are relevant to the ACTIVE project. Each training program covers a general topic and is generated from several training courses that are focused on specific topics. Furthermore, each training program combines different types and forms of learning: traditional, ICT supported or blended training event. For each training course we provide textual materials, references to the sources used for training module preparation, a list of the topic relevant ACTIVE deliverables, video tutorials and additional materials/suggested readings.

1. Theoretical Foundations and Conceptual Models

This course starts with the theoretical foundations on the organisational and collaboration forms, business process modelling, management and collaboration mechanisms, knowledge management and current governance principles in organisations. In contrast it provides basic information about traditional and emerging technologies that influence traditional business organisation and management context. Then it gives motivation for the complete ACTIVE training programme by providing incentives, future trends and business potentials. Theoretical foundations and conceptual models - course

Course topics:

Collaboration and collaborative knowledge creation

Knowledge processes and tasks

Process modelling

Knowledge management

Formalisms for (dynamic) aspects of knowledge worker context and enterprises



2. Knowledge Models and Structures

This course deals with the theoretical background on knowledge and semantic technologies and examines them from a technological, historical and scientific perspective. It starts with the basic facts about knowledge structures and models and their role in the knowledge formalisation, modelling, reasoning and adaptation. It provides comparison and contrasting of diverse knowledge models, structures and systems and understanding their participation in industry. Knowledge models and structures - course

4. ACTIVE Innovative Solutions

This is one of the main courses in ACTIVE training programmes. It is aimed at presenting ACTIVE innovative solutions that will be developed in the frame of the project. Training starts with innovative business and organisational models that are consequence of newly introduced technologies. The main focus is on the explanation and demonstration of technologies developed in ACTIVE, their use in the industry contexts and on the discussion of their implications to the traditional business environment. Course addresses in detail the methods for identifying knowledge processes, hidden knowledge in organisations as well as new technology research streams. Furthermore it explains and demonstrates the methods for contextualisation that spans over three orthogonal dimensions: content, social network and time. ACTIVE innovative solutions - course
