Hyper Island is a creative business school that also offers consulting services. Since 1996, Hyper Island has been helping individuals and organizations seize their potential, develop, and be leaders in a world of constant change.
Hyper Island has always used a unique approach to learning that focuses on collaboration, creativity, and learning-by-doing. We’ve seen over and over again, that this approach builds competence and confidence, helps teams grow, and leads to better outcomes.
This is a Toolbox for the Hyper Island approach. It’s a collection of methods and ideas for anyone who wants to apply it in their own work.
The Toolbox grows over time. We’re constantly developing and discovering new tools and methods and adding them. If you have suggestions or would like to contribute to the Toolbox, please let us know.
The Toolbox includes methods created by Hyper Island and many that come from other sources. We’ve done our best to give accurate credit, and link to references, but in some cases, we have not been able to identify original sources. If you can help clarify sources of methods, please write to us.
To apply the methods in the Toolbox there are some important concepts and guidelines that you should feel comfortable with. Read on to learn more.
Learning-by-doing (or Experiential Learning) is the process of learning new skills, knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes through active reflection on direct experienced. It is a widely used learning approach that centers around a four-step process: first, a concrete experience; second, reflection on that experience; third, drawing conclusions and insights; and finally, applying new learning.
Hyper Island’s methodology is built on a learning-by-doing approach. The tools in the Toolbox emphasize experimentation, participation, and action and designed to be applied with a learning-by-doing approach.
