In our ever-changing environment, we work together to develop effective, innovative teaching methods.
In a world of constant change, we respond to the needs of students and businesses by helping our students to become tomorrow’s managers and entrepreneurs, responsible leaders who go beyond the prevailing models.
In the context, NEOMA Business School chooses to give its graduates the ability to “learn how to learn” so they can acquire new skills and knowledge throughout their careers. NOEMA Business School’s teaching philosophy is deeply rooted in practice-based learning or “learning by doing”, which particularly encouragesreal-world experience of management issues. This translates into constant interaction between theory and practice as well as a wide variety of methods used in our courses and programmes.
Innovative education: blended learning
This mixed teaching system combines distance and classroom learning.
Through its blended learning approach, the school gradually introduces a balanced and well-considered combination of teaching methods adapted to the learning objectives of each programme. Each method is selected to fit the educational needs of the course or learning activity. The objective is to develop a more autonomous and proactive approach to learning in our students.
Blended Learning combines:
- Independent distance learning on the more knowledge-based parts of courses using digital resources
- Classroom and group learning
The aim is to focus classroom learning work on activities that provide greater added value for students using experiential teaching methods (action learning). These experiential methods (simulations, flipped classrooms, project management, case studies, etc.) create a more solid framework for knowledge and greater student commitment to their own learning process.
The teacher’s skills are then mobilised and exploited through their personalised support of the students’ learning process.
A unit dedicated to innovative education
The Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) offers a proactive strategy concerning pedagogic innovation. It provides cutting-edge technologies, methods and tools to enhance the learning process and make it as effective as possible. As a real driving force of pedagogic creativity at NEOMA Business School, the centre promotes and supports the on-going development and improvement of activities, approaches and knowledge in both teaching and learning.
The TLC includes the LIBRARY and CUBE :
CUBE (Counsel Unit for Blended Education)
Its mission is to provide professors and students with environments and technological and methodological resources to develop available and effective tools, content, learning contexts and methods.
Within CUBE, the Simulation Centre identifies the world’s best pedagogic simulations and incorporates them into programmes to link theory and practice, provide experience-based instruction and offer researchers areas for testing and experimentation.
CUBE offers NEOMA BS members:
- Resource platforms
- Help with designing and deploying innovative pedagogy
- Meeting spaces
- Experiential learning resources
Its mission is to provide NEOMA BS members with environments and informational and methodological resources so they can access knowledge and then process it in ever more effective and relevant ways.
The LIBRARY offers NEOMA BS members:
- Work spaces
- Digital and physical book collections
- Journals, reviews and articles
- Case studies
- Research assistance
Above all TLC is made up of experts who are available to assist you with your projects.
To improve its recorded output significantly, NEOMA BS has decided to share a recording studio with other higher education institutions in the Rouen area, in response to the needs of two of our school’s units:
- The Teaching & Learning Centre (T&LC), which is responsible for promoting educational creativity. T&LC staff are experts in documentary resources and educational technology for programmes and professors.
- The of NEOMA Business School Digital Communication department, which is responsible for the School’s Internet communication.
This studio will provide three services:
- Video equipment, for the creation and broadcast of educational resources under quasi-professional conditions,
- Another ready-to-use automated space for the use of professors and communicators,
- Mobile equipment for the creation and distribution of teaching materials outside the studio.
The project is co-funded by European Union (€13 027, 26) and Normandy region (€26 056, 04).
Discuss, work together
The Teaching and Learning Centre also hosts
Meet to Teach (M2T) meetings
These meetings between professors to discuss specific pedagogic topics aim to facilitate the circulation of pedagogic practices to enhance the knowledge and skills of the teaching staff and to identify possible shared projects.
The COMMITTEE FOR INNOVATIVE LEARNING (CIL)
Its mission is to guarantee the implementation of innovative pedagogic methods at NEOMA BS in line with the school’s strategy. It deals with cross-fuctional issues at NEOMA BS or specific issues relating to its training programmes. CIL members are elected faculty representatives.
Innovate, take action
Based in Reims, NEOMA EdTech Accelerator capitalises on NEOMA Business School’s commitment to pedagogic innovation based in digital technology as well as other forms of technology support start-ups coming from the EdTech programme throughout their development.
Backed by Société Générale Champagne-Ardenne, this accelerator covers the three main aspects of EdTech:
- educational methods for learning how to learning and developing one’s creativity;
- technologies and digital tools used for effectively conveying knowledge and skills useful to companies;
- learning management systems.
The objective is to support innovative projects that work to facilitate rapid and sustainable anchoring of knowledge and increased mobilisation of students in their learning process.
The projects coming out of this accelerator will then help to inform the programmes and expand the school’s views on the education of tomorrow.
