Get Online Week Dortmund 2015 - brought to Dortmund by students of rehabilitation pedagogy as a university course
The “Get Online Week” was for the first time brought to Dortmund, a 600,000 inhabitants city in Germany. We are a group of 11 students in the third year of study in “rehabilitation pedagogy” and organized the GOW with our lecturer Dr. Bastian Pelka from Technical University of Dortmund.
We started way back in December 2014 by inviting all telecentres and related organisations in Dortmund to a conference. We discussed possible events and courses and built a network of more than 30 partner organisations in our city. Our partners are as diverse as the city municipality, the Stiftung digitale Chancen, O2 Germany, many schools, libraries, senior residences and workshops for people with disabilities.
We facilitated this network, exchanged ideas, initiated several newsletters, homepages and social network sites, did the public relations and coordinated all GOW related activities in Dortmund. As students of rehabilitation pedagogy we designed seven courses, each addressing a different target group of digitally excluded people and each course taking around one to two hours of lecturing time. We conducted 16 courses with around 170 attendees.
