Research topics

Teaching in Times of COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought unprecedented challenges for teachers, students, and families. What does effective and engaging teaching in these times look like? How does it impact the future of education? The more we look at these questions, the more opportunities we see to rethink and improve traditional teaching methodology and learning in a virtual world.

Leading and Learning in a Digital World

The digital workplace: What will it look like? Will more people across the globe start to work remotely? What will the long-term consequences be? Will there be less traveling and more online collaboration? If so, what do we need in order to lead and learn?

projects and spin-offs

Sometimes our research leads us to discover new talent development solutions that have market potential. In that case, we initiate dedicated projects to refine and test their business models. If these tests are successful, we license our findings, collaborate with our partners to develop them, or start building new companies ourselves.

Case study: Helping students and teachers in times of COVID

In March 2020, COVID-19 changed the educational landscape across the globe. We watched our children’s schools pivot to fully virtual learning scenarios, and while they executed it as well as anyone could, there were obvious hiccups. After seeing the struggles that teachers and children were experiencing with online learning, we wanted to help and find solutions. With a team of teachers, students, principals, superintendents, and education experts, we quickly began developing a series of training programs. After several successful iterations, and after understanding and accepting the fact that these challenges were here to stay, we decided to initiate a dedicated project under the umbrella of Designing Talent, one of our spin-offs that applies Design Thinking to leadership and learning. Designing Talent for Schools is already supporting dozens of schools and is becoming a hub for insights, training, and best cases on how to teach in times of COVID.
