This is our original and most corporate learning journey, combining quality with undivided personal attention to each of your lecturer’s unique needs. It is all about treating each of your lecturers as they deserve to be treated; as highly qualified technical professionals, each with their own nature, aspirations in technical content, unique embedding in a team.

For the overarching logic, see the course portal. Or get a quick impression with our 1 table overview with a table showing you the differences between the variations.

We believe that a healthy teacher always starts with a technically sound design of their curricula. Autonomy, mastery and purpose are immensely important for job satisfaction.

The original resilience course is offered remotely and runs for 10 weeks. Our teacher trainer has a 1 on 1 onboarding call with every lecturer first to create your unique route in the course. Once the course starts, at the beginning of every week, there is a plenary encounter (1 hour). The rest of the week, is self-paced, in an atelier online with modules and assignments that guide you in crafting your course design. They are supported by little audio podcasts that give clear instructions. The teacher trainer has a check-in with you weekly, to interact on your unique course and challenges. On top of that, the teacher trainer is available daily in given time-slots for spontaneous calls.

The course ends with a ceremony in which you receive a certificate that is affiliated at European level, to further strenghten your career path.

And while you are thinking, another question to ask is:

Did you realize that you can design for resilience?

Both for the resilience of your blended course, ensuring your content can last for a decade.

And for your personal resilience as a teacher, ensuring you can enjoy your day and preserve your health.

Are you about to deliver courses, which now, all of a sudden, must be offered in a blended way? Were you engaged in emergency education and still recovering – and looking for a more sustainable way? Do you want to ensure you don’t invest time and costs in exactly the wrong things - only to regret later? You do not know where to start, may not have time to research the extensive material out there, but long for a coherent framework and methodology? One that makes sense along the axis of your time and cost investment?

Did you never actually take a teacher’s degree, and are you in need of more technique, essentials, rhythm and calm? Or: do you have a degree, but it didn’t include blended?

Then our resilience course is for you.

We are here especially for you. Keep asking: does it make sense? #StudioBlended Simplicity and Resilience up to a decade. This is your day, in your life - enjoy every moment.

"During the pandemic, we had to learn how to use new pedagogical tools to work remotely away from the students. This new way of working seemed full of infinite alternatives and I felt too overwhelmed to look into it. What makes the most sense for my practice? How can I find time to learn new techniques given I already have an overloaded schedule? It is in this aspect that Tikvah’s course was so effective for me. In my case, it felt like a revolution.

Before participating, I was completely lost among the many theories of teaching in the contemporary world and the many tools available to work online and engage students offline. From my very first meetings with Tikvah, she guided me on a journey through my own routine.

In addition to a calmed agenda, I learned from Tikvah how to develop a clear, simple, and effective structure for the design of the courses I teach. I now have more quality time to dedicate to other activities, such as research and individual student guidance. My anxiety has diminished, and the students also realized that my courses are well organized and rooted in strong guidelines.

And it works because, instead of another "method", what Tikvah delivers is individually tailored consultancy. She first listens, then she suggests new paths and possibilities for implementing our work differently, without losing what each individual cares about most.

In my country, most institutions still do not understand that teaching activities need to be radically transformed in terms of nature and quality. However, we teachers feel too burdened to make the change ourselves. That's why I think the 10-week experience of this course, accompanied by Tikvah, made a huge impact on my life and therefore on my students."
