RePro training in Kuopio, 26-27.02.2013

RePro training for InnoCase partners was held inKuopio meeting in
Finland on the 26^th February by the Lecturer, Anneli Juutilainen,Savonia UAS.

RePro-project aims to provide tested real-business cases, 12 RePro cases
based on student-centred learning (SCL) and RePro manuals for teachers
and students, on how RePro approach and cases can be used in learning
situations.

These cases will link real companies and their business problems with
learning processes, thereby also combining consulting and learning to
give the parties involved new perspectives. The third product is a
practical step-by-step model that describes the content and process of
developing RePro cases. All these products are different from the
traditional case method as we have developed multidisciplinary learning
modules which can be used in many different study areas and are related
to specific problems of learning tasks. The RePro case material entails
corporate specific information on the business environment, personnel,
production, marketing, logistics, accounting and finance.

On the other hand the learning task could concentrate on the logistics
problems of the firm or on personnel motivation. However, even if the
student concentrates on one problem area, she/he has access to the whole
case material. This will help the student understand the connection
between the different traditional study areas and link the learning
process to the real business context. The SCL-methods intend to
facilitate students’ knowledge creation skills and professional
development.

Training materials will be available soon on the project website.
