Learning Bursts can be delivered in several different ways:
1. Remote, electronic delivery of Learning Bursts
The contents of our courses are digitally stored in mp3 and PDF formats. The content is delivered via our website or a customer's Learning Management System (LMS). (DVD and hardcopy versions are available for an additional cost). The Business Simulation that accompanies "Business Acumen: Your Key to Success" requires Java software.
2. Blended learning approach: Learning Burst course + Webinars
This comprises the electronic delivery of self-directed Learning Bursts, accompanied by the delivery of two or three webinars led by Learning Burst Academy instructors. These webinars help to provide structure and discipline to strengthen self-directed learning efforts, and the chance for more in-depth coverage of company-specific issues. Webcasts are 60 minutes long, but the number and length of webcasts are adjustable, depending on learner requirements. Between each Webinar, participants cover their assigned Learning Burst topics.
3. Blended learning approach: Learning Burst course + F2F workshops
This comprises the electronic delivery of self-directed Learning Bursts, accompanied by the delivery of one or workshops led by Learning Burst Academy instructors. These Face-to-Face workshops supplement the self-directed learning efforts and help the company address company or industry specific Business Acumen issues. There is also the option of running instructor-assisted computer-based business simulations which are great for extending the self-directed learning, and for working in teams on business acumen-based challenges.
Companies may wish to use their own facilitators and subject matter experts for the webinars. In this case, we can provide 'train-the-trainer'services which include facilitator guides.
