Inter-Disciplinary Exposure to the Arts
Applied Learning Programme/Life-long Learning Programme
IDEA is inwardBOUND's innovative multi-disciplinary Arts programme that cohesively melds together Self-Directed Learning and Blended Learning.
What exactly is IDEA?
All of life is problem-solving. Students need creative problem-solving skills to overcome complex challenges– both in their daily lives and in preparation for the future.
That is why we created Inter-Disciplinary Exposure to the Arts, or IDEA that perfectly blends online self-directed and face-to-face learning through creative problem-solving using Arts as the melding tool!
12 ELECTIVE MODULES
Elective Modules are sessions done purely online. Students can access the platform on demand and choose different electives that they want to take, from a selection of Drama, Music, Dance, Visual Arts, Literary Arts, Digital Arts and Innovation programmes.
Our program uses Creative Problem Solving to encourage students to find fresh perspectives and come up with innovative solutions. Each module presents opportunities to build desirable experiences. This holistic process beyond the traditional scope of literacy and numeracy, allows them to assemble their newly found arts skills and knowledge to formulate a plan and take successful action.

Why IDEA? Why now?
The Way of the Future
Our program uses Creative Problem Solving to encourage students to find fresh perspectives and come up with innovative solutions. Each creative module presents opportunities to build desirable experiences.
It leverages a mobile, micro-learning platform to expose students to multiple electives of their choice and curated content online for self-directed study. The students then undergo a face to face training to put the varying disciplines to use and create individual work automatically organized into workbooks for review.
Beyond Standard Curriculum
This holistic process beyond the traditional scope of literacy and numeracy, allows them to use their newly found arts skills and knowledge to formulate a plan and take successful action. Adapting, experimenting, and learning from mistakes is key to success in an unpredictable world. Our program provides that.
Progressive programmes for arts exposure.
