    Online Learning

    For participants with complex schedules and frequent commitments, the self-paced approach helps them navigate a full calendar and put the Open Program learnings first when it works best. This style helps participants avoid going through the motions of the course and instead focus on learning when they have the capacity to do so.

    Blended Learning

    Blended programs combine the best of live virtual and face-to-face learning. Part one of each blended program is hosted virtually and in real time.
    Then, leaders implement what they’ve learned
