A range of teaching formats adapted as closely as possible to the students according to their programme.
As far as the courses are concerned, four formats are proposed: face-to-face, reverse class, virtual class and ELive.
The most innovative is the eLive, which makes it possible to offer an indoor course to one part of the class and a live course to the other part at a distance. This format has already started in June for EMBA students and has been successful.
A quarter of the rooms will thus be equipped with suitable audio-visual equipment by the start of the school year.
This eLive format will be offered mainly to students in IBPM3, PGE3 and MSc. These groups are made up of many international students, most of whom will not be able to come to campus at the start of the academic year due to current travel constraints. Although the recent announcements by the French authorities on the issuance of visas for international students are very positive, the situation in certain areas, such as Latin America and China, must be taken into account. The eLive format therefore guarantees access to the programmes for all, including international students who may only be able to come to campus several months later.
Rennes SB will organise the distribution of the face-to-face or distance learning in order to respect the maximum number of simultaneous students on campus, taking care to balance the 2 formats in equity for the students and to keep a dynamic on campus.
Distance classes will also be prioritised for work-study trainees in the final year of the PGE in order to mitigate the challenge of having two accommodations, one on campus and one near the host company. 85% of work-study trainees are based in the Paris region.
Across the range of educational formats offered, face-to-face and on-site experiences will be prioritised for IBPM1, IBPM2, PGE1 and PGE2 in order to welcome these new students with the optimal level of support and successfully integrate them into Rennes School of Business. For the first and second years of the PGE, the School plans that 80% of time will be spent in classroom, and 20% of the time will be spent on distance learning, allowing for more in-depth independent teaching.
