FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cahoot Learning International, Inc. in collaboration with MIT Professional Education Digital Plus Programs has announced a new, dual-track professional certificates program. Leading in the Transformative Era focuses on the business impact of key trends of the fourth industrial revolution, while Strategic Leadership & Innovation develops skills needed to build high-performing teams and cultures with greater capacity for successful innovation.

The new certificate programs launch with a special session of The Intersection of Leadership & Innovation, starting Monday, Nov. 13. Access to the course is by selective invitation. Information about the course session is available at CahootLearning.com.

Both four-course certificates require participants start by taking The Intersection of Leadership & Innovation, taught by Dr. David Niño, senior lecturer in the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program.

"The challenges today's organizations face in keeping pace with change – technologically and otherwise – are immense," said Mary E. Simpkins, CEO, Cahoot Learning International. "These courses are designed by MIT faculty experts bringing the best thinking and research they can to help people and organizations successfully push the innovation envelope."

After starting with a live, half-day session, courses move to the state-of-the-art Cahoot Learning collaborative learning platform. Designed for working cohorts of approximately 50, with an unlimited number of cohorts running at any one time, the platform replicates the collaborative learning experience of the classroom through the use of a broad range of synchronous and asynchronous tools and activities. Participants work in the full group and as well as in small, three- to five-person teams for specific assignments, all facilitated by the platform. Cahoot Learning facilitators monitor and guide individual and group engagement throughout the courses.

"Expanding our reach is core to our mission," said Clara Piloto, Director of MIT Professional Education Global Programs. "Delivering MIT courses on the Cahoot Learning platform expands our reach in ways not possible even five years ago, while ensuring the collaborative learning experience of the classroom comes through with force."

Currently courses are available for delivery to organizations able to support groups of 25 or more. More information is available at cahootlearning.com or contact us at: info@cahootlearning.com or +1.617.500.0885.
