Evidence based

Scientific research shows that our way of working has a significantly greater impact on learning and behavior change than classical training.

We base this on research that compares experiential learning and starting from simulation exercises, Kolb’s learning cycle and extensive interactive work, hybrid and blended learning, simple models and one-model-one-training with training in which a model is set up ex cathedra, often with slides, often with input from many different concepts and then practiced on. A couple of key studies to illustrate. The first two are meta-analyses and synthesize the results of several independent studies.

Model simplicity correlates with the attainment of specific job-relevant qualifications.
