How to use in practice Massidea.org and national open innovation system (NOIS) as a part of higher education studying processes
This workshop is a practical level continuum of a “INTRODUCING THE BEST PRACTICES TO INTEGRATE NATIONAL OPEN INNOVATION SYSTEM (NOIS) AS A PART OF HIGHER EDUCATION STUDYING PROCESSES” paper presentation, which helps us to better understand how NOIS integration process should be made and how to avoid obstacles that are faced during the implementation process. These theoretically presented practical guidelines make it easier for other universities to start implementing NOIS and other similar system as a part of their own studying processes. This workshop expands practical guidelines suggestions to hands-on doing and gives participants a personal experience on NOIS.
Firstly (about 20 minutes) this workshop introduces the theoretical foundations of National Open Innovation System (NOIS) paradigm, which enables open innovation and online social network (OSN) approaches integration to a National Innovation Systems (NIS) and especially to higher education. NOIS is a part of NIS, yet it is globally scalable. Even if NOIS is OSN, it is strongly integrated to offline higher education system. NOIS is grounded on open innovation – instead of doing everything by yourself, you look also for external resources – and open source – software which is freely and publicly available for use or modifications. NOIS is utilizing user generated content, mass collaboration and crowdsourcing models in order to generate mass ideas and innovations. Mass ideas/innovations are emerging from a mass of creative interaction between a wide range of people who combine different but potentially complementary insights and contents.
In the second phase (about 60 minutes) the practical content production guidelines to create “best possible” Massidea.org content are given. Each workshop participant is expected to beforehand create 1) one today’s challenge and 2) one idea/solution for his/hers challenge (written tutorial is available for pre-task). This pre-task is not mandatory for participation, but desirable. It helps participants to formulate more comprehensive understanding. Participants own output is evaluated by Massidea.org producers and other participants and possible improvements are suggested. Participants write improved versions of their contents during the session.
In the third phase (about 20 minutes) Massidea.org online service is introduced. Massidea.org is a practical web service which turns theoretical NOIS concept to reality. In massidea.org users can upload their ideas, visions of the future and today's challenges and link them with other user’s brainchildren. The mixed outcome - lucky insight - is boosting individual’s creativity and enabling the birth of smashing idea.
In the fourth phase (about 50 minutes) participants will join Massidea.org and start sharing their insights with others. Practical examples “How to use Massidea.org in a class room” are given. During these examples participants are actively taking part to examples as “students”. This workshop is given good capabilities to start similar studying process in own university and experience what kind of benefits there are from transferring a part of studying to virtual online community.
