The eLearning Library has been developed by IIC and contains a wide set of training and self-development resources on transversal competencies, aimed at improving and enhancing personal and professional effectiveness.
Users may learn key strategies on their own in order to confront several situations: leading teams, speaking in public, closing deals or making decisions.
What is the eLearning Library?
The eLearning Library is a collection of training content compiled by IIC psychologists, researchers and professionals as an aid to improve professional skills related to transversal competencies.
It contains training resources prepared to enhance personal and professional effectiveness in six key areas:
How does the eLearning Library work?
Companies may purchase a corporative license for all their employees or contract training itineraries where IIC psychologists expert in competencies have selected key contents for specific positions or profiles, such as young professionals, sales representatives or team managers. Likewise, itineraries may be created and customised for each enterprise.
Resources are available in Spanish and English and consist of clear, direct and simple texts, so they are easy to put into practice. The system integrating the resources has been designed to help employees find easily recommendations and advices to sort out everyday challenges. Resources can be checked directly on the system or may be downloaded to be checked and put into practice later on.
Itineraries may also be complemented by a mentoring service that guides students personally to achieve their training objectives.
Currently, it has over 200 resources in Spanish and English, in different formats:
Maps are a graphical representation of the concepts included in the strategic contents, and the relations between them.
Resources describe essential strategic contents to develop a specific skill or behaviour. These texts are also available in audio format.
Worksheets are a practical aid to train and self-evaluate how strategic contents have been put into practice.
Barriers represent behaviours or attitudes that hinder the development of a strategic ability in images.
Keys are a brief summary of the strategic contents.
Unidades mínimas de conocimiento (UMCs) are interactive pills that comprise theory and practice of a specific ability —only available in Spanish—. In only 30 minutes, UMCs allow reinforcing knowledge and putting into practice what has been learnt.

The fact that IIC psychologists are specialised in personal and professional abilities contributed to the creation of the eLearning Library back in 2011.
