Week 1: Watch videos and read recommended literature (2-3h).

Week 2: Do some exercises (2-3h).

Week 3: Attend live session (c. 4h).

Week 4: Wrap up, read more literature, provide feedback.

One live session of c. 4 hours will take place every four weeks. This will take place in the afternoon, European time.

We will promote the dates and times of the live sessions as far in advance as possible, however, we know that some sessions will be unavoidably missed. The live sessions will be recorded, so you will not miss out on the additional learning and it should not prevent you from completing the end of module quiz.
