Application Process: 

 Every effort is made to accommodate the needs of participants who are in full time employment in the scheduling of contact sessions.

The performance of participants is assessed through various means, including portfolios, discussion papers, projects and reflective papers which describe and comment on the implementation of new educational practices, within a theoretical frame. There are no formal examinations.
