Subject of course

This Program is a complex journey through the topics of idea / product development, team dynamics and self-reflection as the tool to professional and personal development.

It consists of two parts:

  1. The Self-study Part
    - Check for courses on www.imoox.at
  2. The Practical Part
    - Develop your roadmap in a team: Whether you bring your idea or join another team because you find their idea cool: together we face the challenge to create the map you need to develop your idea to the product or service.

Participants are expected to not only get involved but fully commit to growing their ideas.

Teaching methods

The course has self-study elements and is very practical and consists of developing ideas in a team:

- The self-study part is to be completed individually: individual assignments are found on TUWEL as well as on platforms such as www.imoox.at . 
- Team work is self organized. Personal reflexion and peer feedback is documented and collected in questionnaire format. 
- Five topics serve as the headline for developing the idea along the business model canvas . 

The participants start with a digital pitch of an idea into the team building phase. You can bring your own ideas or join another team. The ideas are presented in person at the Team Casting. The formed project teams work together the entire semester. The Monday sessions are interactive workshops to master the course assignments together. Attendance is highly recommended for successful completion of the course. Additional team meetings need to be held to complete and submit the course deliverables.
