Our Learning Model

The need of the 21st century Bhutanese learners requires a paradigm shift in the mindset as well as facilitation style in order to bridge the gap between the industry requirement and the labor market, both locally and globally.  We are incorporating the fundamental blocks of Andragogy and global research-based practice in the implementation of our curriculum. 

Shifting the current learning model from 80:20 (80% Formal & 20% Social learning) towards the principles of 70-20-10 model, which states that 70% of an individual learning happens through experience, 20% through social interaction and 10% through formal learning, the curriculum framework will be designed to result in a stronger balance between theory and practice. We integrate both internship (work-based learning) and apprenticeship (work-based training) programs, and exchange programs, to help our students gain expertise in an industry. We partner with regional and international hubs and ecosystems to design and deliver the most appropriate higher education courses for our students.

This will be supplemented with a blended teaching approach combining the authority style (or lecture style), the demonstrator (or coach style), the facilitator (or activity style) and the delegator (or group style). This approach is an initiation to build a 'cooperative community of learners' where teaching will be a shared activity and students will be developed to be the driver of their own learning.

Learning & Development Solutions

Workplace learning is a win-win situation for both the employer and the employee, as it supports the business growth as well as the employee’s professional and personal development. While it helps employers in their business growth, it is also beneficial for employees as it helps them obtain and hone knowledge and skills to progress professionally and personally.

Framework of our offerings

Learning transfer is the core of our L&D programmes, hence all our programmes are based on the  “70:20:10 Model” in which 70 percent of learning takes place on the job, 20 percent through interaction and collaboration, and 10 percent through formal-learning interventions such as classroom training and digital curricula. These percentages are general guidelines and vary by industry and organization.
 
At LIBT -Bhutan , we help leaders design and implement interventions that support  blended learning, including coaching and mentoring, on-the-job instruction, apprenticeships, leadership shadowing, action-based learning, on-demand access to digital learning, and lunch-and-learn sessions. Social technologies play a growing role in connecting experts and creating and sharing knowledge.
