You create your own online learning design in the Certificate Program. What’s brilliant about this particular course is that it gives you an architect’s view into an award-winning interactive online program while simultaneously providing you with the necessary steps to create your own. The breadth and depth of the 4 modules nicely lead towards the final capstone. Thanks to this program I was able to design EUSA’s “Virtual Internship Program” and am very pleased with the result! After this course, I am confident that we can deliver meaningful experiential learning opportunities for university students who will be serving companies in the international virtual space!
In only three months I’ve learned what instructional design is from scratch, and I feel confident enough to put it into practice. This course provided me with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and tools that I need to create an intercultural and educational project in and out of the virtual space. It also gave me a 360 overview of project management and implementation.
Along with the training program, we had the chance to participate as observers in the global case study challenge and in many different workshops and seminars. This definitely enlarged my professional network and brought me new possibilities for collaboration.
Global Case Study Challenge is an innovative online program where students and professors from all over the world meet to develop new intercultural and virtual skills.
