IE University signs agreement with Audible, an Amazon company, to publish audiobooks, podcasts and articles on management and education in audio format

The agreement reinforces IE University's strategic commitment to liquid learning.

IE University has signed a collaboration agreement with Audible, part of the Amazon group, to promote the creation and dissemination of content in audio format, from audiobooks to podcasts or articles by the academic institution’s academic team andits experts in different areas. The agreement reinforces IE University’s strategic commitment to liquid learning, a model that transforms the educational experience by allowing students to attend classes in person or by connecting remotely to screens installed in classrooms simultaneously, providing them with the same immersive experience and academic excellence.

The agreement has been signed by IE University Editorial Knowledge and includes several lines of activity such as the recording and broadcasting of podcasts based on informative and scientific articles by professors, managers and entrepreneurs with experience in different sectors of activity. These podcasts will analyze issues such as the challenges facing smart cities, positive leadership, CSR and millennials, diversity management in organizations, the future of work or the evolution of entrepreneurship maps.

IE University Launches Center for Liquid Learning

Nick Van Dam, Chief Learning Officer and Professor at IE University, will serve as Chair.

IE University has announced its new Center for Liquid Learning, which will serve to expand and facilitate knowledge sharing of IE’s unique and evidence-based education method. At the core of all IE University programs, the IE liquid learning methodology supports the dynamic lives and unique needs of students and faculty as they move freely between physical and digital environments in an unpredictable and fast changing world. For example, thanks to the liquid learning method, IE University students are able to train in person on campus and connect to class remotely simultaneously and with the same immersive experience and academic excellence.

The objective of the IE University Center for Liquid Learning is to facilitate knowledge sharing, feature liquid learning experiences, and build community. The Center will provide access to academics, scientists, researchers, and other professionals who are thought leaders in the field of education and are continuing to help evolve the liquid learning methodology. The Center will also make available publications and research about liquid learning pedagogies, learning design, and research studies.
