Innover en formation, une interview de Denis Cristol

Par . J’ai eu le plaisir d’échanger cet été avec Denis Cristol, directeur de l’ingénierie et des dispositifs de formation du CNFPT. Il nous invite à porter un nouveau regard sur l’innovation en formation qu’il appelle plus volontiers diversification des apprentissages. Indispensable pour rester en phase dans le monde qui bouge (et loin des logiques court terme d’adaptation au poste), Denis voit l’innovation en formation comme un levier de capacitation réelle. Il aime créer de nouvelles approches, expérimenter et partager comme avec ce cercle d’apprentissage qui ouvrira le 17 novembre prochain. Voir l'article...

Even more bewildering is perhaps the Education Ministry's apparent exclusion from the decision making process. More...
