Horses for Courses: Innovative, Interactive, and Immersive Learning.

There was excitement at Coventry University recently when The Leadership Whisperers introduced their unique team to senior managers from a variety of well-known UK organisations. It was a team with a difference as it’s members were two very handsome horses who were there to identify individual leadership styles and behaviours.

In the Simulation Centre, participants were given a demonstration of how immersive learning, in the form of a simulated Board meeting, followed by feedback can provide relevant and effective results.horses may 2

Professor Rosalind Searle, Co-Director of the Centre for Peace, Trust and Social Relations also gave a presentation about trust in the workplace.

Finally, SimVenture were on hand to demonstrate their new web based business simulation tool “Evolution” which follows on from their award winning SimVenture product.

The day was an excellent introduction to experiential learning and gave the participants a good overview of the services and support Coventry University can offer to businesses.
