The Talent Incubator of the University of Granada has reacted quickly to the current situation of health crisis, quickly adapting and redesigning its training programs to teach them in e-learning mode.
This academic year, the Incubator started three different programs, all with the aim of empowering the participating students with their talent and leadership so that they learn to apply their potential to the existing reality and to assess how they could improve it in the future. The Covid-19 crisis has led to reinforce the importance of this objective, together with the need to change the approach of many of the activities carried out.
In this context, the Incubator has wanted to maintain its planned activities, restructuring the formats but maintaining the essence of the programs and the purposes for which they were created. In this way, the Incubator responds in a manner consistent with a University that has accepted the current challenge by staying active and training its students day by day.
Given that most of the incubator’s training activities were not only face-to-face but experiential in nature on a methodological basis of “learning to learn, doing and experimenting”, the challenge is to transfer this teaching-learning model to digital format. However, each activity is being redesigned to increase students’ ability to take on challenges and develop flexibility and adaptability as key competencies for their future.
