The members of the öggo form a multi-faceted, interwoven learning network, in which the majority of their own extra-occupational professionalisation takes place.
Essentially, collaborative learning happens through changing forms of cooperation within the framework of concrete practical projects, whether they are training courses or consulting projects in various organisations at company level or in cooperation with other companies.
The issues faced on these occasions mean constantly emerging challenges, whose management promotes the common development practically and theoretically. This process is supported by process-accompanying opportunities for reflection, which continually provide occasions for a systematic evaluation of the practical experience gained, to review the personal qualification standard and develop the professional standard of the association.
Over the years, a widely ramified, international network of co-operations with scientists from various disciplines and fields has been established to facilitate the collaborative theoretical work. The discussion of the latest update of knowledge development in our relevant professional fields takes place in internal workshops and forums, in symposia and conferences of experts.
A number of öggo members actively participate in the production of knowledge through their own publications and is thereby integrated in a larger “scientific community“. By means of the aforementioned forms of knowledge production and transfer of know-how, the association aspires to take a leading role in our own field, far beyond Austria, with the collective strength of this mutually stimulating, dynamic learning community.
