Instruction methods are on the move at Audencia Business School! Instructional innovation backed by our faculty is part of a continuous improvement initiative focusing on training course quality. The contents of curricula and teaching practices are changing so that students are increasingly active participants in their learning process. The integration of digital technology (MOOC, serious games, blended learning, etc.) and the layout of modular classrooms (e.g. Learning Lab) facilitate educational innovation projects.
Some examples of the blogs created by students for the Specialized Master’s® Degree programs:
OOPS, Online and Offline Project Starter is a course created by students of the Marketing Design and Creation Specialized Master’s® Degree program as part of the Draft & Craft Festival (Meaningful Design for New Businesses.)

Online programs and courses created by Audencia Business School enable flexible learning, individualized according to the learner's profile:
Recognized for its expertise in Corporate Social Responsibility, Audencia has offered the "CSR & Value Creation" massive open online course (MOOC) every year since 2014. One of the innovative features of this MOOC is that it integrates stakeholders from every continent and thus invites participants to give CSR practices an intercultural perspective. The next session is scheduled for November 2016.
New MOOC courses are being developed.
In 2015, Audencia renewed and digitized its Skills Portfolio.
The Skills Portfolio is based on a repository of 15 skills grouped into 5 areas. The portfolio of each student is input with the approval of skills in the repository, assessments by placement supervisors, self-assessments and peer assessments.
Integrated with the Audencia Tomorrow portal, the Skills Portfolio allows students to visualize their skills profile, assess their strengths or improvement areas, see any differences between the academic point of view and the company's point of view or between their self-assessment and that of the members of their team. Career counselors have access to this information and can comment it with the student during mandatory individual interviews.
