HEC Paris, ranked number 3 worldwide in Executive Education by the Financial Times in 2019, delivered aworkshop on the crucial role of learning style versatility at Qatar Foundation’s biennial World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE).

Professor Wolfgang Amann, Academic Director of HEC Paris in Qatar Specialized Master’s Degree, delivered a workshop devoted to ‘The crucial role of learning style versatility in times of unlearning and relearning.’ The workshop aimed to trigger rich discussion on the role of learning style versatility as a new meta-skill and learning outcome. It presented a case on how a learner will benefit from an increased learning style versatility over a lifetime and especially in a more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.

“This workshop shed light on the larger responsibilities of education institutions primarily in the tertiary education level,” explained Professor Amann, who has designed and delivered executive education seminars for more than 20 years, published more than 40 books for executives and won numerous research, teaching, and impact awards. The workshop, primarily designed as an experiential learning exercise, focused on a tested approach at HEC Paris in Qatar with ProfessorAmann summarizing key session lessons and providing participants with a written summary of the insights. “Participants also gained a thorough overview on how to measure learning outcomes and learning effectiveness based on a newly developed and practically tested tool,” he added.
