The Flexon Learning Methodology

The Master is taught via interactive lectures, case study analyses, exercises, debates, collaborative exercises, video conferences, business analysis, and sessions of student presentations, all in accordance with the highest standards of teaching methodology established by EFMD. Students are encouraged to read as well as participate in discussions and debates. The teaching methodology is built on learning by doing, with lecturers applying a student-centered approach, involving students, and giving activities that allow students to apply their newly acquired knowledge. Professors lead and organise live, interactive lectures as part of the Online Methodology. Students attend pre-master courses at their own leisure and use self-assessment tasks throughout the programmes, which are self-paced. This applicable methodology is made up of synchronous and asynchronous actions.

Students are free to learn at their own pace and define personal learning paths based on their individual needs and interests, as well as the content provided, taking into account the deadlines for learning, evaluation and assessments. The self-paced methodology is applied on the pre-master courses, which are based on pre-recorded interactive sessions led by the lecturer professor, with a PPT presentation, exercises and self-assessment for each course. Students study the material at their own pace and do a self-assessment exercise to track their progress.

The online learning methodology is fully professor-led and facilitated live in real time. Every lecture is created and delivered by a lecturer using our online platform Blackboard. The communication tools used by the lecturers include discussion forums, chats, emails, breakout sessions, whiteboards, and audio and video sharing to communicate and work together. As a final step, sessions usually include an exercise or assessment to measure the learning.

The online methodology in every class is live and interactive. Teaching methods and techniques are used creatively to develop an engaging and motivating learning experience. There is frequent interaction with the student interaction to foster and maintain engagement and promote learning.

The online learning methodology is practical, with all the class activities and online learning methods, e-content and materials used also being put into practice in the different assessments (self-assessments, tests and practical assignments), capstone project and class activities.

The online methodology is structured as a combination of synchronous or real-time activities (such as online platform chats, breakout rooms/sessions, virtual pooling, virtual whiteboard, etc.) and asynchronous or on-demand activities, which students can do whenever suits them best in terms of their preferences and other commitments (such as emails, discussion forum platforms, online platform meetings, recorded lectures via links, virtual coffee and conversation sessions, etc.).
