Co-creating Networked Educational Innovations via Process Simulations
Three facilitated, discussion-based process simulation workshops were arranged to enable the actors of an emerging school network to co-develop their educational processes. The workshops applied specific visual boundary objects in subsequent phases. The workshop data and the follow-up interviews show that the workshops supported a stepwise double co-creation of novel ideas for educational innovations, and of the necessary ties for their successful implementation. More analysis of the longitudinal data is still needed to refine and test this hypothesis.
