PEER-LEARNING, A PERFECTLY IDENTIFIED EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE

No professors, no classes…. At Treize, Trente-Sept, you are in control of your learning. Thanks to peer-learning the school is open 24/7. You can come as you please, at any time of the day or night, including on weekends and holidays.

You are in charge of your success and that of your peers. The entire study course is hands-on and project-based. No academic courses where students’ attention wanders every 10 minutes. Your progress is in your own hands and that of your group.

Peer-learning breaks down barriers between students and professors. It is only by joining our forces that the training can be a success.

PEER LEARNING

A NEW WAY OF ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE

The foundation of peer-learning is collaborative work. Students must challenge each other, share and learn from one another. Just like in any other project, there will be some reluctance, uncertainties, doubts and inquiries on the way forward to achieve the desired outcome. These are questions you will constantly ask yourself when working with your group. They will keep you going and sharpen your skills, not by replicating the academic models or learning them by heart, but rather through research, experimenting and defending your ideas. You need to be ready to embark on a quest for knowledge, share ideas with your peers and not wait for your teachers to provide all the answers.

PEER ASSESSMENT

NO MORE GRADES THAT PUT A DAMPER ON YOUR MOOD

Once projects are turned in, it’s not over yet. It’s now time for assessments. Unlike ANY conventional grading system, student projects are assessed by peers. An inter-student self-assessment system is established where the assessors closely examine the project and assess it according to the very nature of the project and to a corresponding grading scale. There are no scores, just a dialogue. This exchange makes it possible to identify from the outset the issues a project may have to address them rapidly. You are also invited to defend your points of view. After all, we are all humans and we may see things very differently. In the end, a grade is given to reflect all the previous assessments.

PEER PEDAGOGY

LEARNING WITH OTHERS…BY OTHERS.

Peer Pedagogy replaces the notion of traditional education. All students take on the role of “trainers” and “learners”, placing themselves at the heart of the learning system. In that respect, students will naturally have the possibility of submitting their projects to others. Regardless if the project is based on skills acquired prior to joining the school or on a totally new field. The school and its community will have access to a vast and rich set of projects, that conduce experimenting and learning. The different profiles and the number of students are the core strength of Treize, Trente-Sept. Each and every student can leave their mark on the school’s history and maybe even on the world of new technology.

GAMIFICATION USER GUIDE

Students who develop their autonomy and their expertise

All the projects are organized like a video game. Through quests or the collection of star player points, you will navigate as if you were in a MMORPG raking in skills, higher levels and capabilities. For the most part, you will be in control of your progress and you can choose to focus on certain aspects or themes of the project and advance at your own pace.

Throughout your journey, you will collect star player points, broken down into 17 professional skills. You will therefore be moving up from one level to the other.

You could also win “achievements”, some sort of quest awards that will make the learning process fun by allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the video gaming world.

Through gaming in all its forms, Treize, Trente-Sept offers a motivating, rich and comfortable environment that is conducive to students’ self-determination. As such, students can develop their autonomy and expertise.

WHENEVER I WANT

Each student progresses at their own pace. Undoubtedly, certain notions will be easier to assimilate for some students than others. This is why teachings at 1337 are “joined-up” over time. Here, everyone makes progress according to their own pace. And no one is ever late because the course is 100% individualized.

3 YEARS

Treize, Trente-Sept plans on having a 3-year curriculum. This course duration is indicative and includes internships or part-time jobs in the corporate world. Depending on each student, the 3-year curriculum can be shortened or extended without any repercussions on the training. All the job search aspects once the course is completed are addressed during the training. As such, the benchmarks for student learning are expressed in the form of levels of experience rather than in years. Personal experience is what sets the pace for training at 1337.

Three years is the amount of time we deem necessary to learn how to innovate from a technological standpoint. It’s also the amount of time required to gain experience, through internships and professional experience. You’ll be able to take advantage of the unique opportunities offered by 1337 over the course of the year.

CONSTANTLY IMPROVING THANKS TO ONE’S ACHIEVEMENTS

When you are in control of a project, you are encouraged to make further progress. For example, if during an internship, you had an opportunity to work on a new technology that allowed you to gain a certain experience in that field, you’ll be able to skip over that particular field and tackle other challenges without having to wait for your peers to catch up with you. On the other hand, if you feel like taking a deeper dive into the topic, there’s nothing stopping you from doing so.

GIVE TIME TO TIME

Slicing time allows you to engage at your own pace. You can take all the time you need to carry out your project. The timing allocated to each project is an estimate of the necessary time to carry it out. You can stick to that allotted time, or you can also take the time you need to better understand and successfully carry out your project. You won’t be held back by your peers’ progress and you can always count on exchanges with other students to make progress.

In the same way, slicing time makes it possible to deal with the hazards of life…If you need to exceptionally put your training on stand-by, when you come back to Treize, Trente-Sept, you’ll find your projects right where you left them. It should be noted that to be in line with the imperatives of the corporate world, some projects will have established deadlines.
