HOW we do it
We Can Help You Construct Your Knowledge Collaboratively
Our online learning method is based on constructivist learning theory, which means that you will construct knowledge on top of what you already know. Our programs are much more than sharing of knowledge because we will also help you translate your understanding and contextualize it to your specific work situations.
