What does live online training mean?
Our online trainings are not pre-recorded training videos, webinars for large audiences or self-paced e-learning courses. They are virtual live trainings
delivered by our trainers in real-time, focusing on the interaction of a
small group of remote participants. Just like our face-to-face
trainings, these virtual classrooms aim at tailoring the discussions and
learning experiences to the training needs of the participants.
to attend our live online trainings, a reliable high-speed internet
connection and a computer or laptop running Windows or iOS are required
(including audio and video). The Humboldt-Universität of Berlin uses the
videoconferencing platform Zoom (subject to change) for virtual
classrooms as well as digital tools. We strongly recommend an external
headset for better sound quality
Our participants come from all
around the globe. They include staff from development agencies, national
and international NGOs, national governments, university students and
researchers, as well as professionals from the private sector. A good
command of English is a prerequisite.
The tuition fee is 895,- euros per participant.
