A new term appears in the digital vocabulary of EM Normandie: Flex Rooms. The Business School had already been planning them for a while but the Covid-19 pandemic, whose full brunt is felt worldwide, accelerates their introduction. The pandemic’s effect on the higher education community is explosive!
Fortunately, the School may have gone through a number of upheavals since it was founded, not least of which were the two World Wars, it has always been able to reinvent itself. Its community spirit and digital teaching expertise play a key role in allowing it to adapt to these new methods of working and use them to its full advantage.
Confinement means that teaching needs to become fully remote in record time. And everyone is on board! Teachers adapt to the radical new normal, with support from the EdTech department. Even the start of the academic year is uncertain. The School equips all its classrooms with the latest in educational technology. Whether fully in-person, fully remote or via ‘simultaneous delivery’, all potential scenarios are taken into account. Moreover, they are an excellent way of focusing on active and experiential practices (flipped learning, serious games etc.) that boost knowledge acquisition and develop skills such as autonomy, agility and creativity. The School’s latest tour de force.
2006: EM Normandie’s Master in Management is launched!
