Learning Approach


In-person Workshop: Humentum’s highly practical workshops always put the learner first. Our expert facilitators will draw on their own vast sector and subject-specific knowledge to ensure our learner experience is as worthwhile and enjoyable as possible. They will share relevant tools, techniques and insights that are immediately transferrable to your own work. You are also actively encouraged to engage in meaningful discussions, hands-on group work, and pose your own specific questions to further enhance your learning.

Online Workshop: Humentum’s self-directed and focused online workshops always put the learner first. You will have the opportunity to connect and engage with peers from around the world in a social network style environment, while working through a series of engaging videos, assignments and readings. You will have a dedicated, expert facilitator to guide you on your learning journey, and always ready to answer your specific questions to further enhance your learning.

How does an online workshop work?

The online workshop is open for a set number of weeks, and you can log-in at any time that suits you, and work at your own pace. Once online, you’ll find our platform easy to navigate, with clear guides and instructions.

You’ll need to earn points for completing various tasks (such as watching videos, uploading assignments, and interacting with others). The more tasks you complete, the more points you’ll earn. The quicker you earn these points, the sooner you’ll be able to complete the workshop!

We estimate this workshop requires 2 hours per module (8 modules in total), depending on your pace of learning, and previous experience.
