Méthode d'apprentissage: Classe en ligne

Vous suivez cette formation en ligne sur votre ordinateur. Votre parcours comprend trois étapes complémentaires.

  • Étape 1

Votre formation commence sur Karibu, notre plateforme d’apprentissage en ligne. Vous effectuez cette première étape à votre rythme, où et quand vous le souhaitez.

Attention : il est indispensable d’achever cette étape avant de poursuivre votre formation.

  • Étape 2 (3 h) : classe en ligne

Lors de cette étape, vous rencontrez les autres participant·es via Zoom. Votre groupe compte généralement 6 à 12 personnes. Tout le monde peut s’entendre et se voir, dans une optique de discussion, d’interaction et de collaboration. Ensemble, vous apprenez ainsi les un·es des autres, sur la base des connaissances acquises lors de l’étape 1.

  • Étape 3

Cet apprentissage se déroule également sur Karibu, à votre rythme, où et quand vous le souhaitez.

Aperçu du programme

We have two approaches in this programme:

  • How do you generate better and more ideas for a customer problem?
  • How could you organise this on a larger scale for your company?

During the training we work with a case study and focus on the first approach. However, you will already be given the 'tools' you need to conclude the second successfully. With the knowledge you have gained, you design and carry out your own 'challenge' for your organisation.

You may use an idea generation software that will be made available to Cevora students. Your challenge can be, for example, finding a solution for a problem in your department, but it can also be something that applies to the entire organisation. We then have a joint reflection on this.


The training is divided into 4 blocks

  • Preparation (about 2 hours)
  • Introduction to creativity and generating ideas
  • Participation in a fictitious challenge with fellow course members

  • Online classroom / workshop (about 3 hours)
  • Determine the question
  • Various brainstorming techniques
  • Selecting ideas
  • Setting up a challenge
  • Communication during a challenge


  • Your own challenge (approximately 1 day)
  • Preparing, implementing and following up


  • Reflection (1 hour)
  • Evaluating your case together with fellow students and teacher
