Where Business People Grow

EADA bases its activity on training, research and the transfer of talent and knowledge to the business world. Our mission is to boost the professional development and growth of our participants and the transformation of organisations, with the aim of contributing to a society based on greater fairness, solidarity and sustainability.

Immersive Learning is the methodology used by our organisation. It has been developed in 3 formats (or delivery models) and adapted to current circumstances: Face2face, Online and Hybrid.

“I am really impressed with the quality of the immersive learning at EADA - every day is a challenge and a discovery! I am excited to attend every class.”
Amira Zerrouki
Current student Master in Pharma & Biotech Management

"Being part of the EADA online intake has been a wonderful experience. The professors have shown great preparation and enthusiasm and made us feel comfortable with the "learning by doing" methodology, taking it online in very creative and fun ways. My classroom is full of different cultures, languages and religions, and they are all incredible, smart, special people. I cannot wait to meet my classmates in person in January - I have learned so much about them in so little time.”

Andrea López
Current student, Master in Sustainable Business & Innovation

EADA Learning Methodology

EADA Immersive Learning

Immersive learning is the best pedagogical method used to develop the new skills that leaders must possess in times of VUCA. It requires attention, the ability to listen and filter as well as to find patterns in the chaotic present situation and stay open-minded.

  • Immersive learning provides learners with an environment which is highly interactive virtually and/or physically. This helps to replicate possible scenarios and teach specific techniques or skills to the students.
  • The effectiveness of immersive learning is that relevant and realistic settings can have a huge impact on the psyche (and neuroplasticity).
  • By imitating a physical environment, we can improve the learning experience which eventually adds a great recall value in terms of learning.

Some examples of the methods used in Immersive learning are: High impact simulations, NTL (Neurotraining Lab), Role playing, Cases, Outdoor Training, Flipped-classrooms, Mentoring Sessions or Reverse Mentoring.

 

The Advantages of Immersive Learning: 

  • Immersive learning enables you to practice real world skills within a safe environment. The activities are supported with rich feedback and they do not disrupt or impact the real customers or processes in any way.
  • This learning strategy helps to achieve mastery of a behaviour, technique, or methodology as it involves guided rehearsals as many times as required.
  • Since immersive learning has a realistic and engaging nature, it establishes an emotional connection between the learners and the learning experience or event.
  • The learning is about being embedded in the context. This is done by providing a simulation of the actual environment in which the students are encouraged to work.
  • In this learning, a student receives individualised instruction as he/she progresses according to their own pace and through simulation.

Aims of Immersive Learning: 

  • 3 delivery protocols: Face2face, Online or Hybrid.
  • Technology-enabled re-enactment of real-life situations, through cases and simulations operated both online and offline: Face2face, Online or Hybrid.
  • Develop the ability to "be in" a classroom, meeting or working group, either Face2face or Online.
  • COVID-19 disruption proves that the current business world is as much online as offline.
  • Your future success depends on your ability to operate seamlessly and integrate both experiences and modes of operation.
  • EADA's immersive learning provides the skills for the dual online/offline world.

Hybrid Learning: 

EADA provides a hybrid training model which involves a mixed class of both Face2face and virtual participants and guarantees a top quality experience to both participants and faculty members.

  • Technology at the service of all attendees and teachers
  • The Face2face participants will benefit from the same experience as in normal times and they will also be able to interact with the online participants
  • The installation of new digital technology will allow the online participants to follow the training live. They will be able to see, hear and participate in class in the same way as they would in a normal Face2face session
  • The teacher will continue to work as normal and their experience will not be affected. Technology will aid the training experience and not detract from it.
  • Online and Face2face monitoring and support for participants
