EDHEC opens a pedagogical lab to find the best teaching practices

Written on 02 April 2015.

EDHEC Business School has officially launched a Pedagogical Innovation Lab – or PILAB – to enhance teaching and teaching technologies. The PILAB is a key component of EDHEC’s 2020 strategy, and its primary goal is to develop the classroom of the future.  

The EDHEC PILAB will consist of the following units:

  • The Pedagogical Innovation Incubator: to help faculty develop and design their courses in collaboration with pedagogical experts.
  • The EDHEC MediaLab: to support faculty members with pedagogical creation (videos, online forums, SPOC, etc.).
  • The Teaching Development Unit: to provide teaching training and other teaching supports to faculty members.  

The PILAB will be a central place on campus where faculty members can work on pedagogical innovations and test them (together with colleagues and support staff); where adjunct faculty can work in between classes and share teaching experiences; and where faculty workshops and meetings (such as the Food for Pedagogical Thought lunches) will be held.

The PILAB will be managed by three staff members who will be recruited in the coming weeks. An internal shift is also planned to bring all valuable pedagogical resources (case studies, MOOCS, etc.) together on the Lille and Nice campuses in order to accelerate EDHEC’s pedagogical innovation efforts.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting pedagogical project at EDHEC, where innovation is at the heart of education.
