Project summary

SOLUTIONS FOR SOCIETY AND INDUSTRY

The core of T-CREPE is the development of an innovative web based platform to support cocreation based learning (a design based learning methodology), with a particular focus on entrepreneurship. In T-CREPE co-creation cases diverse student teams, together with stakeholders, develop solutions for real life problems from society or industry.

The consortium consists of a geographically balanced team of 4 academic partners with a background in co-creation in education, education, business and textile engineering and (virtual) design. Industry is represented by 2 industry clusters and 2 SME’s specialised in ICT in textiles.

CHARACTERISTICS

Innovative

Co-creation brings broad as well as in depth knowledge and skills (entrepreneurial behaviour, multi-perspective thinking and building partnerships).

Open source

Makes your teaching/coaching more enjoyable and effective by developing your own games for your students to play and learn specific concepts for your course.

Web based

A web based platform support lecturers in implementing co-creation based learning activities into their courses, improving the coaching and commercial exploitation.

Interdisciplinary

Although developed for textile engineering (a very multidisciplinary field), the T-CREPE platform will be easily transferrable to other engineering fields and mainstream education.

Gamified

T-CREPE tasks consist of developing the online support tool and its content using a gamified approach and IT tools for textile design.

Adaptable

T-CREPE builds on tools and contents available from previous projects, additional content (games) will be created by the partners but also by lecturers and students.

THE ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM

PLANET METAPHOR

 

The platform uses the metaphor of an imaginary planet to represent the journey students take to understand, experiment, define, develop and deliver solutions for a design project.

Student teams are invited to engage in a co-creative process through the semantics of Continents (phases), Countries (concepts), and Cities (tools) on an e-learning environment.

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1.
PROBLEMS ADDRESSING

 

Huge effort is needed for adequate coaching between teachers and students, and for commercial under-exploitation of students’ ideas for innovative products and/or services.

STEP 2.
SOLUTION METHODOLOGY

 

By utilising the Design Thinking methodology, student teams together with stakeholders co-develop solutions for real life problems from within society and/or industry through play.

STEP 3.
OUTCOMING RESULT

 

The project sets out to make coaching and learning for university students and educators more effective, playful and time-efficient.
