Module Structure: Each module combines distance learning and in-class training, using a three-tier structure.
The pre-module (self-study) phase offers readings and assignments which aim at achieving an equal standard of knowledge within the group.
The core module (in-class) phase allows participants to expand on and utilize knowledge they have acquired in the pre-module phase. Participants are guided by lecturers who provide additional in-depth knowledge and practical tools, preparing them for the practical use and application of the material in their professional setting.
The post-module (written assignment) phase, allows participants to apply the knowledge gained while carrying out their assignment or project, which reflects the overall learning outcome of each module.
