Course methodology

The learning experience is structured around the following components: 

  • A micro-learning experience characterized by small knowledge units (modules and micro-lessons) where participants consolidate and reflect on learnings through the creation of micro-content (multimodal forum replies, blog posts, etc.). 
  • Scenario-based learning, exposing participants to real-life challenges and tasks of UN managers. 
  • Consolidation of takeaways through reflective practices and social learning to facilitate information exchange and peer-to-peer learning.
