NGOLP adopted online teaching via Zoom for the training sessions of Modules 1 and 2 from March to May 2020. UBS skill-based mentors have actively participated in the online teachings, delivering a series of one-hour training, namely Project Management & Delivery, Financials and Budgeting and Presentation Skills. Meanwhile, we also invited overseas scholars to give lessons to the class. Dr. Patricia McNamara from the University of Melbourne co-led the training with Ms Rachel Cartland, on the topic of Policy and Advocacy. Online learning has enabled more UBS and overseas trainers to join the programme and connect with our participants remotely.
Our Programme Director, Professor Mooly Wong, conducted a mid-term evaluation to explore the satisfaction level of participants in online teaching. While there is no significant difference in their satisfaction level on knowledge and skill acquisition when compared with the results last year, most participants prefer to have face-to-face learning as it could facilitate their mutual learning, community building and networking.
