Exclusive individual support cannot be provided.
Each unit of the course consists of two introductory videos, additional working material, specific exercises and a short quiz at the end of the unit to assess your knowledge and understanding of concepts.
The contents are best designed to meet adult educators’ needs in teaching, training and educational management.
