Your learning O.A.S.I.S is where you develop your personal learning environment. O.A.S.I.S stands for Opportunity, Architecture, Scaffolding, Immersion, and Stewardship, which lays out our progressive pathway for your development:
Opportunity: We provide, curate, and/or seek out learning opportunities directly relevant to your needs according to your personalized curriculum.
Architecture: We develop a personalized pathway forward composed of our experiences, your formal learning endeavors & personal interests, and evidence-based research.
Scaffolding: We coach you through each step as we develop your digital profile, personal knowledge center, and learning environment.
Immersion: We facilitate your success through the final immersive experience for your chosen certification.
Stewardship: We provide opportunities for you to continue your learning with us or independently, utilize your new skills in your professional life, serve with Onyx Corps to facilitate fellow learners with your new knowledge, or embark on your own endeavors.
O.A.S.I.S. methodology is derived from our founder's personal research and experience. This progressive structure ensures you establish foundational knowledge and capabilities necessary for either Onyx certifications or an industry-recognized qualification in your chosen domain.
