Didactics

This course favors collaborative learning. Participants are requested to actively contribute to the courses in form of discussions, asking critical questions to fellow participants and to the coaches, suggesting useful sites or cooperating with others in the completion of the assignments.

Participants are co-responsible for the exchange of knowledge and the level of interaction. This process is facilitated by the daily availability of the coaches who guide participants through the learning process within your online learning community.

Every week there will be different assignments. The assignments aim at reflecting the content provided and stimulating discussion for a further deepening of the content. Parallel to the assignments, the 'Forum' provides an explicit space for further debate, questions and exchange of knowledge.

The course is offered and supervised entirely on the Internet in English language.

Participants enter the course with an individual password, and attend at their own convenience, pace and level of intensity during the running of the course.

Weekly assignments and intensive discussions form a central part of the course to promote knowledge exchange and knowledge sharing among the participants, coaches and external experts involved.
