Course Outline

The course encompasses a 4-weeks period with approximately 24 hours of active learning through readings, videos, discussions, polls and quizzes. The course is mostly asynchronous but does feature some live webinars and is based on a participatory approach aimed at developing and reinforcing personal critical reflection and peer-to-peer learning. Examples from different areas of the world and on different themes allow the identification of cross-regional and cross-cutting issues and enable a global and multidimensional understanding of the topic.
