Please note that whilst you do not have to be online at a specific time, all participants move from one module to the next at the same time and are required to provide peer-to-peer feedback in active online discussions, therefore it is important that participants are available to be online for at least 4 hours per week for all 4 weeks to ensure eligibility for a certificate.


If a participant will not have internet access for an entire week or more during the workshop, we would advise they register for an alternative date.
