The aim of this report is directed towards establishing strong synergies and closing gaps between theory and empirical evidence on the issue of social innovation (SI) education. Hence, the report will provide an initial grounded theory of learning in the context of social innovation, based on the analysis of 14 real-life case studies and their discussion with the support of diverse learning theories. The report thus bridges findings coming from the analysis and discussion of case studies with literature review, trying to capture the multifaceted aspects of learning in the context of SI. Moreover, the report analyses gaps in the current education of social innovators and operators in the field of SI, providing advice and guidance on gaps and possible ways of filling them. The overall goal of this Deliverable is to empirically analyse the learning factors at work in different SI contexts, to classify and discuss them against the theoretical research on learning and to produce a set of recommendations to fulfil the gaps that already exist in the field of formal SI education.

Abstract

The aim of this report is directed towards establishing strong synergies and closing gaps between theory and empirical evidence on the issue of social innovation (SI) education. Hence, the report will provide an initial grounded theory of learning in the context of social innovation, based on the analysis of 14 real-life case studies and their discussion with the support of diverse learning theories. The report thus bridges findings coming from the analysis and discussion of case studies with literature review, trying to capture the multifaceted aspects of learning in the context of SI. Moreover, the report analyses gaps in the current education of social innovators and operators in the field of SI, providing advice and guidance on gaps and possible ways of filling them. The overall goal of this Deliverable is to empirically analyse the learning factors at work in different SI contexts, to classify and discuss them against the theoretical research on learning and to produce a set of recommendations to fulfil the gaps that already exist in the field of formal SI education.
