Methodology

This one week course is comprised of lectures, syndicate work, and student presentations. Due to the huge amount of information, 80% of the course consists on central presentations/lectures held by a facilitating team (4-5 teachers/instructors). The syndicate work consists on analysis of the main logistic doctrines, discussions and back briefings having “understanding of the doctrine” as the main objective.
