This tasks as an innovator and mentor of digital knowledge skills at the workplace should be taken over by the “digital promoter” of the company.

Presenting results of HAMK Training week in Hämeenlinna

On 20-22 May the Finish partner HAMK organised a Training week in Hämeenlinna. The training gathered 4 training experts working for the project partners. The main two main goals were:
  • Test the IO2 guidelines by delivering main parts of it to the training experts and
  • Gather feedback on existing outputs, especially discussing the DC4Work guidelines and toolbox 4.0 for qualifying a digital competence promoter. Participants appreciated the project website, where the guidelines and tools can be found. But they also suggested improvements, especially regarding the structure and feasibility of the toolbox in order to set it up more tailored and intuitive.
The results from a practitioners' point of view will help to adapt and finalize the project outcomes.
