After three intense weeks of work, it’s time for another blog post to keep you updated.
#1 our poster is ready
I would like to say a really big thanks to a great graphic designer, photographer and a brother Mathias Schalk, for the support in helping me with the layout and the design. Thanks to Mathias Schalk!
#2 Networking with students and universities
As any new movement, one of the biggest tasks right now is getting connected with students and universities, which we are doing mostly via social media. We are reaching out to different student organizations and groups on both Facebook and LinkedIn, sharing our message and inviting them to be a part of the movement. At the same time, we are trying to get in touch with local universities in Slovenia, which are in Ljubljana and Maribor. As a next step, we will be sending out our public image packages towards all surrounding universities in Austria, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia and so on. We do so because we aim to have both Slovenian and international participants on board. During the event we will be covering students’ needs including food and beverages, and will gladly inform all international students about the local sleeping possibilities.
…But what do the students learn during the summit?
#3 Program and Mentors
As we were working on our program, we tried to include many interesting fields such as computational design, BIM methodologies and point cloud usage. However, this was only a raw idea of what three of us wanted to include. After many talks with Silvia and the BILT team about potential mentors, we researched and contacted viable leads. In the end, we reached out to relative professionals and shared out ideas and visions of our first BILT Academy Summit. Faster than expected we have received many replies from experienced specialists from all over Europe. This encourages us that we are going on the right path.
Here is our preliminary version of the program:
What are the key learning Objective 1, 2 & 3 you may ask…
#4 Key learning objectives and Structure
We found it very challenging to arrange high-quality content in the span of one day. That is the reason for splitting up the entire workshop environment into 5 or 6 smaller groups. Every group will have a mentor, specialized in a specific field that he/she will work on together with the students. This specific field is divided into three key learning objectives.
When it comes to the structure of the event itself, it will begin with a thorough introduction of the main topics for the summit, assignments and problem formulations. Following is the second and third parts, focused on collaboration and execution of the assignments.
We will keep updating you on the process of organizing and structuring of BILT Academy Summit 2018 in our next blog entries!
