DELIVERY STRUCTURE

Work with us to design the delivery strategy that suits your learners.  We recommend the content is delivered in 2-3 bite-sized interactive sessions  over a day, week or longer.  We find this maintains engagement levels and allows participants time between sessions to apply their learning to their own work.  Some courses utilise our eLearning platform, which allows multimedia content to prepare learners for the live sessions, complete any pre-study and visit in between sessions to work on application tasks.

Self-Study Lessons

Some courses include multimedia content covering key concepts, frameworks and principles. Learners are encouraged to review materials prior to the workshop and can access anytime during the programme.

Virtual Workshops

Interactive zoom-based workshops that help learners activate the tools/skills with their peers. We apply a range of tools to support group work and collaboration, including online breakout rooms, virtual whiteboards and a digital collaborative spaces.

Application & Feedback

Each programme includes application activities that encourage the participant to apply their learning to their situation. Some of the activities are submitted for review by the trainer.
