Tiphaine Follio: Director of Instructional and Curriculum Innovation at Rennes School of Business
A role in charge of asserting the school’s innovative identity and developing a portfolio of programmes that are consistent with the School’s strategy
Tiphaine Follio joined Rennes School of Business as the Director of Instructional and Curriculum Innovation in September 2020. Previously acting as an expert consultant for the School, she led the reform of the way languages are taught and advised the teams during the major reviews of the Programme Grande Ecole and Bachelor programme. Following her first six months in the role, we’ve taken the opportunity to have a closer look at her background, roles and her achievements so far at Rennes SB.
With 20 years of professional experience in training strategies, instructional design, project management and business management, Tiphaine is strongly involved in asserting the school’s innovative identity. In collaboration with the different departments of the School, she works to develop a portfolio of programmes that are consistent with the School’s strategy.
Instructional design is also an important aspect of Tiphaine’s role at the School. She listens closely to the needs of both students and professors, whilst taking different aspects of neuroscientific research and technological development into account to create an innovative learning experience, in collaboration with a team of instructional designers.
We asked Tiphaine to tell us a bit more about her first six months in the role:
“Joining Rennes School of Business was the opportunity for me to carry on strategic projects such as the major review of the Bachelor programme. It has also been the occasion to lead the transversal initiative called Uman to focus on the way we support our students. It gave rise to granting students the first Rennes School of Business badges on implicitly acquired skills in digital agility to be advertised on their LinkedIn profiles. There will be more innovation to come, of course!“
