Module Descriptions

Below you can see the four modules, which will be accessible online. You need to finish all modules sequentially so you can correctly follow the course. Each of the modules contains four learning units, which respectively consist of three components:

  • a learning activity which will be completed by the participants on their own, usually involving text or video.
  • an assessment activity which involves interactive elements, either between participants or using gamification aspects, which will be used to determine, whether you learned what we want you to.
  • an evaluation activity this will be direct feedback to us, as we want to further improve the content.

Below you can see the four modules, which will be accessible for one week each, one after the other. This format is chosen to guarantee a high number of participants per activity. You need to finish all modules sequentially so you can correctly follow the course.
