More information about the actual live program

Weekly Work

Weekly work will be assessed based on your participation and engagement during the live session as well as engagement on the Community Platform. Note that some weekly work will have to be submitted before the Live session. This will be communicated to you clearly on the Community Platform.

Community Platform

The Community Platform will serve as your exclusive learning portal for this certification. Here you will have access to your lecturers and fellow students and will be where you gain access to your lecture resources, pre-reading material, recordings of the live sessions, and your ‘weekly work’, which consists of questions posted on the Community Platform. You will need to answer these weekly work assessment questions within the week – all of these elements will make up part of your final assessment score. Your personalized access to the Community platform will be sent to you. Your requirements for each week will be clearly explained in the Community Platform Classroom.

Live Group Meetings

As per your Curriculum Calendar, each week you will be required to meet for the live group meetings held on Zoom. Any pre-reading/viewing required prior to the meeting will be indicated on the Platform. The lecturer will lead and direct the group discussion and will encourage individual participation. Participation in these meetings will be analysed based on your level of engagement, delivery of relevant points and opinions, professionalism, and ability to grasp and understand the topics discussed.

For those who are unable to attend the live session, a pre-recording will be available on the Community Platform. As mentioned, you will be assessed on your engagement during the live discussion. If your attendance for a particular session is not possible, you would be required to complete a form listing your key takeaways from the session, to be submitted on the platform within 24 hours of the pre-recording upload.
