dis·cov·er·y learn·ing : Learning that creates situations where learners explore new ideas, exercise new thinking, demonstrate new behaviors, and solve problems relevant to their positions and the work they do.
ATTRACTING & INTRIGUING
Borrowing a little magic and showmanship of advertising and marketing, Paradigm Learning employs sound, visuals, and “power openings” designed to grab the learner.
Learners are given enough information to get the experience started. “You just bought a business for $40 million. Now what are you going to do?” So goes the opening of our immensely popular Zodiak®: The Game of Business Strategy and Finance.
Guided small team discovery exercises that get learners involved, thinking, doing, and questioning (“Wow…I wonder why…if…how…”)
DISCOVERING & CONCLUDING
This is the “ah-hah!” stage. Learners are led to pull together conclusions and insights.
BRIDGING & CONNECTING
Finally, experience and insights are bridged to real workplace issues and follow-up actions are determined (“So….now I know what to do, how to act, etc. I plan to use this knowledge to…")
Our clients include hundreds of US and global organizations, of all sizes and across industries. An estimated 1.5 million of their employees have experienced one or more of our solutions.
HOSPITALITY, LEISURE & ENTERTAINMENT
“Thank you for not trying to make me into an accountant! This activity was the right amount of information; it will allow me to have a meaningful conversation with our CFO about why we need a piece of equipment in the Operating Room (OR), in his language!”
