Didactic framework for the Toolkit activities and interventions

The didactical frame and strategies for interventions in the Toolkit are inspired by the ‘PUSH-method’, in Danish; SKUB (Kirketerp; 2012). This method is according to Kirketerp a method that supports, trains, and stimulates enterprising action in others to create a learning and teaching culture that promotes the participants’ ability to act on their knowledge in a way that creates value to oneself and others. The method (model) points out seven empirically and theoretically based strategies and describes a change process from having a thought to forming a visualisation of acting on the basis of these thoughts.

The “push” in this process, consists of applying seven strategies to stimulate an enterprising action.

According to Kirketerp, when a facilitator successfully, through training and teaching the Push method’s strategies, she/he helps others to convert thoughts into action, then enterprise can be stimulated. The most important strategy for change is according to Kirketerp, learning the master experiences. 
  1. Master experiences
  2. Means to the goal
  3. Insight and reflection
  4. Courage to fail
  5. Changing of habits
  6. Role models
  7. Reward for action
