The learning journey:
blended learning serves as a smart addition to the power of classroom training.

About Beeckestijn:

Work is constantly changing and that requires the right knowledge and skills. Beeckestijn Business School helps with this. With compact and practical programs in digital, marketing, cx, data and communication created by 100% subject experts.

Reducing the knowledge gap

Beeckestijn has always been committed to teaching, whether in a classroom, online or on location. The learners have been trained at a middle/senior level and have several years of work experience. For this group, it is important to maintain social contacts and to be able to apply the theory in practice. Blended learning in aNewSpring offers Beeckestijn the opportunity to reduce the knowledge gap between participants and provide more space for discussions combined with exercises.

Adaptive experience

What does such a learning experience look like? There is an attractive, individually designed, adaptive experience for every participant. This includes gamification elements, social interaction and personalisation. When the participants start the learning journey, they immediately come into contact with their on-the-job trainer. They can fill in their expectations and start with preparatory teaching materials. By filling in their personal profile, the participants can discreetly get to know the other participants. They are constantly challenged to master the material in an interactive way and to network with fellow students.

“We are only at the beginning of implementing blended learning and gamification within aNewSpring. We will continue to optimise the online environment with great energy.”
– Mirna Chaitram, Programma Manager Beeckestijn

Link between online and classroom

aNewSpring has grown into the automatic link between online and classroom moments. A lot of paperwork is automated online, which is of course good for our trees. In addition, aNewSpring has become a knowledge base in which participants and teachers can share podcasts, white papers, etc.

Industry organisation Onboarding Blended learning

The food-processing sector not only faces difficulties in finding competent workers but also witnesses a high turnover in employees. Cérélia’s situation was no different, but they decided to tackle this challenge head-on.

In this case study, you’ll learn all about how exactly Cérélia went about it, and where TWI Company, AG5 and aNewSpring fit into that puzzle.

Trainers Skills training Blended learning

Kompas Safety Group made a rather startling discovery that one-third of the learners who enrol with them do not even start the course!

With aNewSpring, they managed to bring this percentage down to nine percent. But how? That’s what we’ll be looking into for this case study.
