Irina Mikhailova, Head of Corporate Online Programs at the Project Office of the Graduate School of Management of St. Petersburg University (GSOM SPbU), Advisor at VTB Bank, and Sergey Lukashkin, Director of the Scientific and Educational Center "Digital Technologies in Education" (REC CET) Business School, spoke about how to effectively train managers in an online format using digital technologies at the VI Russian Forum of Corporate Training.
Irina Mikhailova shared the GSOM SPbU approach to creating management education programs for middle managers using the Management Essentials program as an example. She noted that when developing the format, the team focused on creating a high-quality scalable product for teaching the basic competencies of a manager: the course combines the consistency of an academic business school, a practice-oriented business approach and the best methodologies of online teaching.
The speaker also noted that in order to achieve a high level of satisfaction with the learning outcomes in a corporate context, it is necessary to adapt the classic format of the "inverted classroom" (when the theory is studied at home, and in the classroom students analyze practical cases and solve applied problems) — in particular, strengthening the role of curators, incorporation of project work and mentoring sessions with business practitioners.
“Using the mechanics of social networks and parting educational content into micromodules, you can achieve significant results in learning. In turn, VR also improves learning efficiency: Conversational simulation creates a realistic environment for practicing practical skills. Mixing formats gives the maximum effect in teaching staff and students. "
Also participating in the discussion were Vyacheslav Yurchenkov, Head of the Center for the Development of Educational Technologies of SberUniversity (moderator), Dmitry Gudzenko, Director of the Computer Training Center of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, and Yulia Buyanova, Head of the Training Managers Group of the OPEN Group.
