Le Bahut – an innovative school which places an onus on pedagogy and Digital Learning

Le Bahut was opened in September 2020 in Lyon, France by the team at Sydo, a pedagogical consulting firm.

????Top tip from the Academy: we recommend you follow Sydologie, Sydo’s magazine about pedagogical developments – it’s a real gold mine.

With over 15 years of experience in pedagogy, the team decided to open the very first school devoted to digital training course design.

Le Bahut proposes 2 training formats geared towards different profiles:

  • Short courses to allow employees to quickly acquire the skills they need to design and create effective training courses;
  • A long course, a one-year work/study programme (5 weeks at work and 1 week training) to learn to design, create and deploy instructor-lead and remote courses.
    Our team worked with students on the long training course.

Transmission day

To mark the 3rd anniversary of its partnership with Le Bahut, the Teach on Mars team was delighted to host a transmission day with the school’s students.
We centred the day around three key areas:

  1. Mobile Learning basics
  2. Familiarity with the Teach on Mars solution
  3. Course design

During the day, we taught 25 students to use the Teach on Mars solution and we guided them through the design process of their on-line course.

To pep up the final part and the deliverable, we asked the students to come up with a course about the Teach on Mars solution with the following requirements: 

  • Course topic: sexist and sexual violence at festivals
  • Training target: individuals working with the public (reception staff, bar staff, festival volunteers, etc.)
  • Course objective: to prevent this kind of violence and provide insights on how to act when confronted with it
  • Format constraints: 
    • training using the Teach on Mars app
    • using storytelling codes
    • at least two modules

Students deliverables

Quickly familiar with the solution, in just a few hours, the students managed to create impactful, creative and instructional courses.

Here is an example of a course created by one of the groups to raise learners’ awareness about the notion of sex debt (a feeling of sexual obligation without desire).

The students created a course based on an encounter between two individuals at a bar after initially meeting on Tinder.

The narrative outline was as follows: 

  • Initial situation: the characters discuss on Tinder.
  • Disruptive factor: they decide to meet up
  • Actions: meeting in a bar
  • Disruptive factor 2: the female character wants to go home.
  • Resolution: at the woman’s home, appropriate behaviour from the male character
  • Final situation: the two characters each go home without any behaviour undermining the other person’s consent.

The featured activities enhance the story and provide interactivity, for example:

  • a mobile course to create the encounter between the two characters with a screen shot of their discussion
  • a training game with several different situations; learners have to make the appropriate choice in order to avoid falling into the sex debt trap.
    Example: XXX wants to go home, how do you react?

The students remained highly receptive and creative throughout the day.
At the same time, this also allowed our team to provide designers with support, to foster their ideas and respond to their valuable observations.
