Energy Scout online training courses also successful in the Czech Republic and Hungary

After the successful test run in Bulgaria and the climate protection webinar in Greece, the German-Czech as well as the German-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry have moved Energy Scout training courses into virtual space. This means that all four partner countries of Young Energy Europe have now taken the chance to use the corona period as a chance for digitalisation.

Two lecturers in the Czech Republic
On May 19th the German-Czech Chamber of Commerce and Industry organised its training course on presentation techniques. To improve interaction with the Energy Scouts, two lecturers guided through the training. While there is usually one lecturer present during in-class training sessions in the virtual room, two lecturers have the advantage to present, moderate and answer questions simultaneously. A survey tool was used to evaluate and discuss the answers of the eight participants in real time. The teams can test their learnings at the final event on June 25th – during a live presentation in front of an expert jury and audience they will compete for the best Czech project 2020.

Two dates per training in Hungary
The colleagues in Hungary split their full-day training into two online trainings, since long online sessions are generally considered very exhausting. They each consist of two blocks and a break. After a talk on the topic of the training, the participants can ask questions.

Future challenges
The aim of all partnering CCIs is to make online trainings even more interactive. Currently, the webinars often have the character of a lecture. Very soon, the Scouts will be asked to do exercises and work together in break-out groups.
