COURSE DETAILS

Our courses take place over three weeks and cover 12 modules (see below). There are two 3.5-hour interactive online sessions each week, and each session covers two modules.

Sessions run from 6 pm to 9:30 pm SAST, with a break between the two modules.

Each module includes pre-readings, recorded PowerPoint presentations, whole group questions and discussion, and small group activities.  Each session also concludes with an assessment of the material and delivery of that session's work.
