UCT GSB Executive Education offers targeted learning interventions that are relevant and responsive to the fast-changing world of work to help their learners at every stage of their leadership journey, encouraging them to invest in themselves and add value to their organisation.
To expand the reach of their courses, the UCT GSB has partnered with Hubble Studios on several different initiatives to enable and create blended and online options for their programmes. A customised platform, to be used across the UCT GSB, has been complemented by training sessions for staff and faculty as well as analysis and design exercises completed on the possibilities for the digital transformation of a few courses, including the Executive Development Programme.
Hubble Studios partnered with UCT GSB to develop the UCT GSB online platform and offer technical support to its learners and faculty. This included supporting and enhancing the digital expertise already present in the UCT GSB Exec Ed team.
When co-designing programmes with the UCT GSB Exec Ed faculty, Hubble Studios focused on enhancing the effectiveness of the existing in-person and online programmes through carefully selected digital interventions aimed at increasing participant engagement and learning.
This involved streamlining orientation and pre-work; providing topical resources for learners to use during and after the programme; and creating a space for ongoing post-programme engagement through virtual sessions and one-on-one check-ins.
“My team and I have had the pleasure of working with the Hubble Studios team for the past 3 years. The team has not only developed our UCT GSB online platform, but they have also continued to provide excellent support and training for the Executive Education Team throughout the years. They have also provided guidance over the past few months as we have been navigating the huge shift to online.
The highly-skilled and professional team are able to design high quality blended and online courses. Their understanding of higher education landscape coupled with their excellent instructional design skills make them an excellent Edtech partner. I value the partnership that we have developed with the Hubble Team and would highly recommend their services.”
