The Above & Beyond Academy

The Above & Beyond Academy provides online adaptive learning tools and workshops to help leaders and employees to embrace the future, where business success will be measured in a company’s ability to be agile, adaptable, and most importantly inclusive.

The skillset needed to thrive is expanding, and in order to cultivate and hone these specific skills – and especially to develop inclusive leadership – Above & Beyond Academy has developed three tailormade adaptive learning courses, that are supported by various workshops to anchor the learnings in the organization and ensure deeper commitment.

This two-fold approach creates a cohesive and comprehensive learning journey.

What is Adaptive Learning?

Adaptive learning technology uses artificial intelligence to adapt the learning process moment-by-moment to meet each learner’s needs; it considers what the learner already knows and begins with the competencies most needed to improve. As such, the tools have the insight to be conscious of blind spots and thereby instigate behavioural change.

In addition, HR will receive feedback on the level of knowledge, the areas of improvement and the learning ability on boththe level of the individual and the company. This provides a unique way for HR to assess where best to utilize further resources to organize e.g. workshops promoting the desired inclusive culture.

HOW TRADITIONAL E-LEARNING & ADAPTIVE LEARNING DIFFER

Traditional E-Learning

  • SAME FOR EVERYONE
  • PUSH (CONTENT FIRST & THEN QUESTIONS)
  • IGNORES WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW
  • START FROM SCRATCH

Adaptive Learning

  • ADAPTS TO EACH INDIVIDUAL
  • PULL (CONTENT APPEARS ONLY WHEN NEEDED)
  • TAKES INTO CONSIDERATION WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW
  • RECHARGE - BEGINS WITH WHAT YOU STRUGGLE WITH
