Certificate Program Design

  • These programs can be delivered in-person or online.

  • Some certificate programs are incorporated into semester long classrooms while others are delivered in shorter workshops or professional development trainings.

  • What all certificate programs have in common is the inclusion of at least 8 Collaborative Discussion Toolkit activities which are intentionally designed to practice specific skills or mindsets to improve collaborative discussion behaviors.

  • All certificate programs are focused on practicing skills, reflecting on their importance, and debriefing with others for deeper learning.
