Course Structure

We have designed the two CPD Summer Institutes to allow for a mix of lecture, group work, debriefing and presentations. For the online program, participants will review course material prior to sessions and scheduled speakers. Collaborative learning is an integral part of the CPD professional education experience. Participants are expected to attend every session regardless of the program, complete all assignments and contribute effectively in both large and small group sessions.
