The course is 6 weeks long. Each week we’ll create a consistent experience so you can easily manage your workload. While traditional face to face classes had you seated in a room for multiple hours, we recommend taking a short period each day to review materials, participate in the discussions, and engage with your instructor and colleagues. There will be a 1-hour live, virtual session each week where we’ll apply the knowledge learned in the self-directed materials using case studies and small group work.
In order to get the most value from this course, learners are expected to participate in and contribute to each week’s activities and homework assignments, as instructed in the modules.
This course will start Oct.1, 2020.
