Study Groups last for about two months and are run one or more times per year for each course. These provide the main basis for Q&A with Jon, and also asynchronous chat based discussion about the course, and the application of the content with other participants.
Study groups are supported by four Zoom calls during the life of a study group. These help members of the group get to know each other, enable discussion on more complex issues, support activities (depending on the course) and provide a basis for reviewing the application of content to your participants' own organisations:
This schedule means that participants need to be able to put about 1 to 2 hours per week into their study, or an equivalent amount of time spent more flexibly as there are various options for taking a course, eg:
Reviewing all the content in advance and then taking the study group.
Splitting the main part of the study into two half days maybe held around weeks 4 and 6.
Not taking a study group and just reviewing the course independently if this is the preferred approach.
