In previous blog posts, we have explored the need to be prepared for the changing world.  We have examined what skills are currently in demand, discussed emerging job offers and how the power of  online learning can help you to be in line with these shifts. 

In this month’s blog post, we’re about to take you on a journey – a learning journey, to be precise. This journey is an illustration of what you can achieve, whether you’re looking to upskill, reskill, or simply prepare for whatever the future may hold. 

Let’s us show you a possible process to craft your learning journey via the EIT Campus. Here is an infographic of a possible way of using the EIT Campus: 

Here is an example of how a person could use this process in their learning journey: 

Alex is 35-year-old person working within the sustainability and urban mobility sectors as a Project Manager. Alex would like to better understand the world of sustainability within the circular economy and also the way AI can be integrated.  Alex is hoping to position themselves for promotion. This person will ask themselves the following questions: 

1. What are my learning goals? 

To know more about circular economy and AI. 

2. What skills do I already have that contribute to my goals? 

Environmental policies, green technologies, urban development, data analysis, strategic thinking, team leadership, and commitment to public engagement. 

3. Which of these skills do I need to update to achieve my goals? (My upskilling needs) 

More skills related to green technologies 

4. Which new skills do I need for my goals? (My reskilling needs) 

Understanding of circular economy, designing recycling and upcycling practices, and AI-driven decision-making. 

How do I use the EIT Campus to achieve my upskilling and reskilling needs?

Here is only one of the many examples: 

  1. Visit the EIT Campus and do two searches, one for the term “Circular economy” and another one for “Artificial intelligence”. 
  2. Find two courses, one is called  Circular Economy – Sustainable Materials Management and the other is called  Business Implications of AI: A Nano-course
  3. Click on the course overviews where they can see a definition of the curricula, how long they will take, the complexity level and other information for each course. 
  4. Save suitable courses using user account, by clicking on the heart-shaped icon.
  5. Decide both courses might help fulfil part of your learning needs, because the contents look valuable, they fit in with their available time and they are at the correct level. 

Now it is your turn to turn your learning needs into reality. Why not try this process for yourself? Assess your skills needs and go to the EIT Campus to build your own building pathway!
