This program uses a blended online learning model that weaves together best practices in adult education with creative networking opportunities.
  • The model includes:

    Independent online learning (up to three hours)

    Comprised of e-learning modules, videos, webinars, podcasts, readings, polls and more, independent learning enables participants to work through material at the time and pace that best suits their individual needs. It also allows for content to be broken into shorter, more digestible sections, and delivered in multiple formats to appeal to different preferences.

    Live, instructor-led session (approximately four hours)

    This instructor-led online session will focus on the application of concepts covered through independent learning. The live session might include class discussions, breakout group discussions and exercises, Q & A with instructors and other experts, simulations, live interactive panel discussions, live polling and online chats.

    Learning sustainment tools and resources

    Following course completion, participants may receive follow-up resources – such as recommended reading materials, videos, webinars, portals, courses and self-directed peer exchange. These resources help course alumni maintain up-to-date knowledge and feel engaged as part of the ICD community.
