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 three 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.
Peer group exchange (approximately one hour)
With small participant groups, facilitated online peer exchange will enable learners to build meaningful connections with peers, and exchange ideas and experiences that flesh out newly acquired knowledge and skills.
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.
