The guiding methodological principle of the course will be ‘practice what you preach’: the tutor team will apply the principles underlying effective IST to this particular course. Among other things this means that the methodology of the course is based on the constructivist learning principle, which allows for active and interactive participation, as a result of which participants will be able to integrate new knowledge, understanding and skills into their existing repertoire.


e-learning environment (SharePoint) is at the disposal of participants. This will enable participants to keep in touch with tutors and with other participants after the course. It will also enable them to download relevant documents that will be posted on the e-learning environment and be informed of future initiatives and developments in the area.
