Key Information

Delivery and Programme Management

One week before the contact sessions, delegates will have access to the online course environment through which they will receive a general course orientation and study materials for some structured background reading.

This is followed by a three-day workshop underpinned by experiential learning principles. Active participation during the workshop contributes towards the formative assessments. An individual assignment is due within one week after the workshop.

Team dynamics are assessed through a group research-based project, which is due within three weeks after the workshop. Delegates then reconvene for one more day, for panel presentations and debriefing.

Between the contact sessions, delegates will be supported via an online tutor and peer interactions.

A concise report on current achievement and opportunities for further development is issued per delegate
