Learning Methodology

Vladimir Rogiers and Jan Keuppens are very experienced in leading interactive sessions and will actively engage participants in discussion, answering any questions that may arise. Group exercises will be used throughout the course which will help delegates learn how to apply the theory and frameworks to their own situation. A simulation game runs through the 2 days so that participants can assimilate the course content by putting the theory into practice. 

One of the most valuable aspects of attending any CELforPharma course is not only being able to have your specific questions answered by leading experts, but also having the opportunity to share experiences and have in-depth discussions with your international peers.

infoThe typical audience size of our courses ranges from 6 to 24 (max) participants.
