IEC wins social learning award

The Institute of Executive Coaching and Headshift Australasia have recently won a Platinum Award for Best Use of Social Learning Tools in the LearnX Asia Pacific 2010 eLearning and Training Awards.

After 10 years in the market, the Institute identified a need for greater flexibility in our coach training program as the participants we train are increasingly located at a distance – from Asia to Europe.   After extensive research, the IEC concluded that a blended online/face to face program would enable remote participants to complete their coach training from a distance, as well as allowing all participants to complete training more quickly and at the same time embed the learning more effectively.

In conjunction with Headshift Australasia , the Institute designed an online social classroom which  has proved to be very successful, creating increased;

  • engagement in preparation activities,
  • completion of activities for certification (as well as more students submitting on time!)
  • familiarity and rapport in the classroom – people arrive already engaged with the group,
  • cost effectiveness – the program is less costly and less time consuming to administer.

The IEC now offers social learning classrooms as a learning support for our Coaching Skills, Conversation Skills and Mentoring programs.
