The project beeB is based on the development of intellectual outputs, staff and beekeepers training events and multiplier events dedicated to technicians, beekeepers and the general public. During the project, five transnational meeting will support the work.

beeB project develops the following 7 intellectual outputs

0101

MOOC Course Curriculum

Based on the results of the target groups needs and preferences in terms of training ecosystems, a design of the learning contents, methods and materials will be proposed. Adaptive learning and microlearning methodologies will be used to allows a personalized learning pathway adapted to trainees learning rhythm based on its previous knowledge, interests and needs and to the reality of beekeeping in different contexts and regions.

 

The MOOC course will grant a qualification/certification at national and European level.

0202

Collaborative b-Learning HUB for beekeeping with innovation and knowledge

A technical structure and the virtual environment of Collaborative b-Learning will be assembled to support the components from the next working-steps and through which trainees can select the contents and create their personal learning itineraries (adaptive learning) and share experiences and knowledge – crowdlearning.

0303

Infographic and pills of knowledge (PoK) ensemble of organic and good beekeeping practices

A set of micro and adaptative learning will be organized, using Infographic and pills of knowledge (PoK), that will materialize the MOOC course, structured in small contents (when possible in the form of videos and podcasts) adapted to the needs of the participants, allowing to create personalized learning itineraries and enabling “instant learning”.

0404

Bee health field tool

Use of gamification to assess and manage the beehive – The most important and actual technical constraint in beekeeping are the technical features related with bee diseases and nutrition. In that sense, special focus will be given to this subject, with the development of a specific tool that can be easily used in the field by all beekeepers, independent of their background, using an innovative learning strategy – gamification – that provides an effective, informal learning environment, and helps learners practice real-life situations and challenges in a safe environment.

0505

Cross visiting training guide

The ‘Cross Visit’ aims at collecting information about innovations and solutions that have taken place or that are in progress. During a Cross Visit there is an intensive exchange of information and experiences between the visitors and hosts creating spaces for intensive informal interactions between participants. A “Cross visiting training guide” will allow to structure the presential component of training, in a familiar training ecosystem – the apiary environment of a fellow beekeeper. A guide for the training steps and for the learning outcomes assessment will be delivered.

0606

Bee roadmaps for citizens

The wonders of bee life and products as tools to promote a new business. In order to stimulate innovation pathways among beekeepers, and pursuing an increasing interest of consumers and the general public, a Storytelling approach will be implemented and organized as a communicative tool in order to teach knowledge and values associated with the world of bees and raise a more general interest, which are fundamental assets that might contribute to value the beekeeping sector.

0707

Building new ideas for beekeeping using spirals of innovation

Spirals of innovations, an innovation process for planning (from defining your challenge to changing systems), will be used as a methodology to stimulate entrepreneurship on the target group, aiming to prepare them to establish or broaden their business. Materials and training guidance will be delivered to implement this methodology and similar ones.
