PRES Bourgogne Franche-‐Comté: Founda6on for Scien6ﬁc Coopera6on • founded by decree on December 15th 2010 as a Founda6on for Scien6ﬁc Coopera6on • gathering all players from Bourgogne and Franche-‐Comté: universi1es, engineering schools, teaching hospitals and healthcare centres, na6onal research centres (CNRS, INSERM), business concerns and regional or local authori1es • to federate academics and private companies in order to elaborate development strategies for the two territories within the next 20 years. “Research and developments, crea6on of spin-‐oﬀ, innova6on, and pedagogy are the heart of the Founda6on for Scien6ﬁc Coopera6on”.
“TalentCampus: novel approaches and environments to help learners reveal, develop and capitalise their talent”
What do we mean by talent? • A capacity for achievement or success • A talent is NOT a natural ability or the top of the class! • Talent is connected with the idea of joy “Talent involves a par6cular ability, combined with speciﬁc resources and a dis6nc6ve style, applied to a given ac6vity and ocen performed with pleasure in a remarkable way.”
TalentCampus ? • A pedagogical programme supported by the PRES Bourgogne Franche Comté and its Founda1on for Scien1ﬁc Coopera1on • Accredited by the French Government within the Investments for Future Programmes • Obtained a ﬁnancial support of 5.3 Million Euros for 8 years • Cer6ﬁed within the 5 ﬁrst innova1ve projects for Educa1on in France in 2012
Objec1ves ? • To develop competences complementary to academic ability • SoI skills: leadership, behaviour in society, emo6onal intelligence, stress management,… • To encourage “excellence through “diﬀerence” • Key principle: social, age and disciplinary diversi1es
Audience/Target • Teenagers from high school, students (undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD), employees (juniors and seniors), job seekers • All disciplines and cultures • Strong connec6on with companies: lifelong training and learning
Hard skills Soc skills Who you become… Leadership Crea6vity Self-‐conﬁdence … Keys for success: diversity, innova6ve pedagogy and evalua6on
TalentCampus, a truly innova1ve approach to training for talents from all walks of life • Proposed in the format of Winter, Spring and Summer schools • Designed for groups of 20 to 30 learners (target: 100 learners/session) • Diﬀerent programmes adapted to learners: – ‘revealed talents’: those aware of their capabili6es and ap6tudes but who experience diﬃculty in exploi6ng them – ‘hidden talents’: those who have talents but who are not yet completely aware of them.
TalentCampus, a truly innova1ve approach to training for talents from all walks of life • classes rarely take place in the classroom and may well be out in the open air! • courses are based on innova1ve learning (ac6ve learning, collabora6ve learning, project-‐based learning) • learners take away with them a tool kit to help them implement their talent (network of talented and an accredita6on recognising their competencies) • Ambassadors!
