EpiHackTM / Online Course Training
Together with its partners, the Skoll Global Threats Fund took the lead in organizing and facilitating the past EpiHackTM events.
The many successful outcomes and products from these EpiHackTM events exemplify their value. This model can be productive in other parts of the world as well. However, the extension of this event around the world poses challenges on how to make it sustainable, scalable, and replicable. Having local organizations be in charge and take the lead in organizing and facilitating EpiHacks on their own is ideal.
Business On Network or BON has established EpiHackTM / Online Course Training with grant funding from the Skoll Global Threats Fund to support efforts to sustainably replicate EpiHackTM events moving forward. We collaborated with former organizers and facilitators from previous EpiHacks to create training and mentoring programs for our prospective EpiHackTM organizations and facilitators. There are four free online courses.
Two fundamental courses: General Organizer Course and General Facilitator Course that consist of standard toolkits, useful materials, and practical methods on how to conduct an EpiHackTM event for any organization that is interested in hosting an EpiHackTM event.
And two advanced courses: Advanced Organizer Course and Advanced Facilitator Course, for any former EpiHackTM organizer/facilitator who has proven his/her organizing and/or facilitating skills in EpiHackTM event(s) and obtains certificate(s) from our General Course(s) to take further steps to become an EpiHackTM mentor.
However, these online courses are still at the early stage, we are opened for suggestions to improve our works. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, feedbacks, etc.
