Quality Audits in Indonesia

During August 2022, the University of Gloucestershire and Hafelekar Consultancy, as responsible Management team for the BUILD-Project (Building Universities in Leading Disaster Resilience), visited four Centres of Excellence (CoE) located in Indonesian Universities.

Huge congratulations to Universitas Ahmad Dahlan and Universitas Islam Indonesia (both in Yogyakarta), Universitas Muhammadiyah in Palu and President University in Cicarang for having launched local Centres of Excellence in Disaster Resilience as part of the Erasmus CBHE BUiLD Project. The Centres will act as local hubs to deliver disaster response capability, awareness training, curriculum development, research and innovation, and community resilience.

It was amazing to see the teams at the centres in person and we are immensely pround of what Indonesian colleagues have achieved over the past three years.

Institutional Visits in Indonesia – August 2022

GET OUT OF THE STRESS TRAP!

Say STOP now and take advantage of our training offer free of charge via our website: or via app:

In the course of digitalisation and the increased use of homeoffice offers, new digital technologies are spreading rapidly in the organisation of internal cooperation. However, this development is not only a blessing – but goes hand in hand with changed work routines and new sources of stress. Tools don’t work? You only communicate – and don’t feel like you get any work done? Messages arrive on your mobile phone even after work?

These are just a few examples of #technostress. Learn with our training courses how digital technologies influence and burden your everyday working life – and what you can do about it. Whether as a company or out of your own interest – test the solutions developed in the #STRESS-LESS project via our project website or by App.

You want to create structures to holistically create a healthy digital working atmosphere? A training course has been developed for #companies to assess their own processes and take organisational countermeasures.

Interested? Visit us on our #homepage. The trainings for companies will take place in presence, if you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them personally.

All trainings are of course free of charge. We look forward to seeing you!

Probing our fortune

Career Preparedness and Life Navigation with Folktales

In this project we will use the Folk Tale work method to develop sets of self-help and coaching / training tools for young people and their advisers and coaches to think through their choices and motivation to  design their next life and career steps.

Folk tales are a way of narrative therapy. The stories – and the analysis of them – can support learning from the situations portrayed, the behaviour of the characters and the ways of solving problems. Folk tales teach us of trial and error and of not giving up, even when it’s hard. These stories can influence the way we live, and the way we think. Using folk tales from different countries also provides a good opportunity for increasing cultural awareness.

… So we can all become queens and kings of our own lives, and live happily ever after….

The main objectives are to

  • improve the preparedness of young people for career and life choices by developing their self-reflection, their resilience as well as to encourage them to make active decisions and to take their life and career planning into their own hands;
  • to increase the acceptance of cultural diversities and to develop positive attitudes towards sustainability.

Main results are:

  • Framework and Screening Tool on Carrier Preparedness for counsellors
  • Six Folk Tale Boxes, containing tools for self-help and counsellor work, such as the analysis of the tales, cards on the scenes of the tales and assessment questions for self-help and coaching, instructions for coaching on the specific tales, and also group work schedule and tools to work with the tale in youth groups.
  • Training curriculum for youth workers and counsellors including modules for young people.

CareerBOT

Chatbot based Career Guidance

CareerBot partnership seeks to improve Digital Readiness of the Career Guidance sector by implementing CareerBot methodology and tool, facilitating blended guidance sessions and to use customized Labour Market Information (LMI) to empower marginalized job seekers. We want to put Career Guidance Practitioners at the centre and assist them – and their organisations – on the path of digitalisation so that they can advise their clients in the best possible way.

By the help of our methodology, job seekers will be able to gather relevant information before and after personal interviews, so that valuable personal services can be used efficiently. With the “CareerBot project” we propose a pilot that focuses on the role of career guidance, which became more demanding, and must be adapted more rapidly and flexibly to the changing needs of the new world of work.

The CareerBot project includes 4 main project outcomes:

  • CareerBot Content and Methodology
  • CareerBot Tool
  • Blended CareerBot training for Career Guidance Practitioner
  • Transfer Handbook for Implementation with focus on Organisational Development (OD)

In addition, a training event for Career Guidance Officers will be held in Greece and ten Multiplier Events will be organised towards the end of the project to share the learning and engage with all the relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the new CareerBot tool and its benefits.

Digi-Ageing

overcoming loneliness

“Loneliness in old age” is a well-known social phenomenon that still receives too little attention. However, the current pandemic clearly shows us that we need to pay more attention to the issue. Older people are increasingly isolated in this situation:Those in care facilities are secluded for their own protection, others have little contact with friends and family or live entirely on their own. People caring for older people are often overwhelmed by the many safety precautions and challenges in their own daily lives. This is also true for family caregivers.

Since October 2020, the international Digi-Ageing consortium has been working on a comprehensive concept that addresses these challenges and develops appropriate measures to counteract the phenomenon of “loneliness in old age”. One of the main goals is to increase competences in the use of digital tools in the elderly care sector and to create a strong network that develops joint solutions.

What we develop

  • Research reports on the topic of loneliness in old age
  • Creation of a network that specifically counteracts this phenomenon
  • Digital diagnostic tool to be able to recognise “loneliness in old age” in good time
  • Digital intervention tools for education providers in the field of elderly care, for caregivers, for caring family members and for interested older people themselves
  • Curriculum for the Digi-Ageing Training Programme for the Care Sector

How we reach caregivers

Within the framework of the Digi-Ageing project, so-called “pilot trainers” are trained to subsequently conduct training sessions with other interested persons from the field of elderly care. These professionals will then implement the Digi-Ageing method in their own institutions and recruit other interested people.

STRESS-LESS

Well-being and prevention of stress from working

The STRESS-LESS project aims to provide and support the uptake of innovative open pedagogies and approaches in the field of improving the digital competences as well as personal, social, and learning competences of staff of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). The project will be focusing on equipping people with knowledge and teaching them habits how to better cope with digital stress.

Especially as a result of digital transformation and the associated changes in business models, workflows and the use of digital tools, employees are faced with constantly increasing demands in terms of flexibility, accessibility and transparency. As a consequence of this progress workers are suffering growing stress-related conditions.

The project objectives are to

  • develop new training content about prevention and management of digital stress that can be applied in work-based settings or in “home-office” settings by SMEs, their staff, managers and trainers/mentors. The training content will be available online, free of charge via web and mobile based platform;
  • empower VET teachers, trainers and mentors in work-based settings through the development of effective digital, open and innovative pedagogies;
  • provide data from research and feedback from practical implementation of measures against digital stress to scientific organizations, training organizations and policy makers, so that they can build upon the results of the project.

As a result of the STRESS-LESS project in the long run SME staff and other learners will be healthier, less stressed, easier to communicate with, suffer less from depression and burn-out. SMEs staff will take less sick leave and be more productive, efficient and competitive.

BUILD

The mission of the BUiLD project is to develop Indonesia’s national Crisis Management and Resilience knowledge, preparedness and response capability, through the design and implementation of a Disaster Resilience Framework across Indonesia and its Higher Education Institutes.

The project aims to create a Centre of Excellence in Disaster Resilience in each participating Indonesian university. Under the umbrella of a National Disaster Resilience Network, these centres will act as local enablers in the implementation of a comprehensive Disaster Resilience Framework. Based on the penta helix model, the vision behind the creation of the centres and the national disaster resilience network is to facilitate collaboration between universities and the public, private and third sector. This Disaster Resilience Framework integrates resilience capacity building at multiple levels, including the individual, programme, institutional and national level. It addresses several aspects of resilience capacity-building, including university governance, disaster response and recovery capability, disaster awareness training, curriculum development, internal and external information exchange and knowledge transfer as well as fundraising.

Objectives

  • One of the project’s objectives is to increase the attractiveness of disaster resilience education and career development in order to build future research, innovation and leadership capacity. Aligned with the aims of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education programme, the project will lead to the modernisation of university governance across Indonesia, improve the management and functioning of universities in crisis situations, and strengthen their external relationships.
  • Cumulatively, Indonesian partner universities have a diverse network and close working relationships with key organisations. These include the National Ministry of Education and Higher Education (formerly MoRTHE), the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), non-governmental disaster aid organisation ACT Alliance, the Muhammadiyah Disaster Management Centre (MDMC) and funding platforms kitabisa and Lazismu.
  • At local level, partner universities have working relationships with emergency services, including the police, hospitals, the military and with local businesses and communities. The project endeavours to consolidate and considerably strengthen the disaster resilience expertise and response capability that already exist in participating universities and their networks.

By October 2022 a minimum of 8 universities across Indonesia will have adopted the Build Best Practice Model for University Governance. A minimum of 8 universities will have participated in the BUiLD Disaster Awareness Campaign and been trained on delivering a disaster awareness workshops to students, staff and associated stakeholder groups and the use of virtual reality equipment. A minimum of 8 Centres of Excellence in Disaster Resilience will have been created A working BUiLD Disaster Resilience Network for cross-sector information sharing and knowledge transfer will have been established, supported by a web portal.
