"There is an intimate and necessary relation between the processes of actual experience and education."
John Dewey (Experience and Education, 1938)

In Patagonian, we believe that the best way to incorporate new knowledge is to interact with it. In our workplace, experiential learning has a long tradition since, over time, it has proved to be the most effective means to acquire skills.

Patagonian Nest is a “Learning by Doing” program focused on hands-on experiences. This program incorporates coach-based training, hands-on simulation, team-based learning, and case-based sessions.


Participants immerse in an active and shared learning environment. Team-based learning provides these small groups of attendees with real problems to solve (which is the “doing” part). Moreover, Patagonian Academy provides content support.

Patagonian Nest works in a realistic working environment: a software development company. Therefore, Patagonian Nest training Programs include a wide variety of topics from Web or Mobile Development and QA Automation to UX /UI designing.

Patagonian Nest Training Process

Consists of 3 kinds of learning stages:

Online learning in a self-paced mode. Modules are completed with community support.

Blended mode means moving to advanced topics with a personal mentor who works in the production phases. The mentor will guide you through challenging tasks as soon as you decide to apply for this stage.
