Premium VLLs

Premium Virtual Learning Lab

A Virtual Learning Lab (VLL) is a structured learning program consisting of online course materials, exercises, virtual lectures and group discussions that allow participants to gain a deep understanding of a specific field over a period of several months. The material is offered in multiple blocks of two to four weeks allowing flexibility on the part of participants.

A Premium VLL is composed of:

  1.  Online training material for self study. This includes videos, texts, quizzes and assignments. The material is offered in blocks with 2 – 4 hours to be spent (anytime and self paced) over a period of two to three weeks.
  2. Check In sessions: three live video conferences of 1 hour in which some additional clarifications are provided and questions are answered about the online material. These sessions are optional.
  3. Virtual Expert Lectures: five live video conferences with presentations (also 1 hour) by seasoned experts from industry providing additional perspectives and discussing practical and organizational matters.

The total amount of time to be spent over a period of 3 months by a participant is about 20 hours, all inclusive.

We currently offer two Premium VLLs:
