Our teaching and learning model

Our courses have been developed using an innovative crowdsourcing content model. Each module was co-created and is maintained by diverse and multiple industry experts under the guidance of an experienced learning design team (open pedagogy).

With the learner at the centre of all design decisions, CONNECTed courses are dynamic, engaging, social and above all industry relevant. These are not courses that you will struggle to make time for at the end of each day… Instead, you will rush to get involved in the discussions, complete assessments and learn from your peers and our experts.

With content pervasive, the learning team is inspired to design scalable curation techniques that bring together a variety of perspectives in a coherent narrative, one where learning is fun and easy to apply.
