  • Monday 22 February, from 13:00 to 13:45 CEST

  • Saturday 27 February from 13:00 to 14:30 CEST

The course is an instructor-led training, delivered through a combination of live online participation (through Zoom live sessions and Zoom breakout rooms) and individual reading and study (through pre-recorded video lectures, powerpoint presentations, reading materials and quizzes). Participants are expected to engage in approximately 25-30 hours of active learning through individual study and readings, quizzes, participation in live online sessions, debates and group works on assigned case studies.

In order to ensure to all participants the necessary time to study, revise and complete all quizzes, the online course will open one week ahead of the first live session and will close one week after the last live session, for a total of 3 weeks (15 February – 6 March 2021).

All live sessions (22-27 February) will be recorded and made available for the entire duration of the course and until 6 March 2021.
