Pedagogical Innovation at EDHEC

Pedagogical innovation is considered as one of the crucial components of EDHEC’s policy. The purpose of  EDHEC’s Pedagogical Innovation Lab, “EDHEC PILab” is to support course digitalization. at EDHEC student experience is our moto in all these innovations: Living it all together but taking care of each students context and personality. Thanks to blended learning we give opportunity to students and professors to teach and learn differently, Thanks to new smooth and scalable technological solutions  we redesign spaces more flexible and multi-device equipped to enhance creativity and collaboration. 



Learning by doing

The school’s credo ‘EDHEC for Business’ is translated in ‘learning-by-doing’ programs. Based on active learning theories, the target of ‘learning-by-doing’ is to involve the student and make her/him an actor of her/his learning. Thanks to this dynamic, the student is able to develop its critical thinking, creativity and self-evaluation.  We believe at EDHEC that such a way to learn will help students to win on autonomy, responsibility and work performance.

The development of real-life case studies which are taught in class is one way to put forward this approach. Also Our Open Innovation, Nego & Explora, seminars, where students search for an innovative solution for company’s existing problems is greatly appreciated, as well as the hackathons, dedicated workshops and simulation games that are organised during the year.


The Pilab supports instructors at EDHEC to effectively use educational technologies and spaces through:



Content Creation

Faculty may ask for support from the PILab to redesign their courses scenarii, create online items, assignments, …, add interactive tools in class
