* The course methodology is based on action learning principles and offers a systemic approach to KS. We will actively reflect and jointly explore opportunities, using blogs, wikis, and other virtual collaboration tools. We will experience different meeting techniques, draw network maps, and use KS principles and tools throughout the activities.

* All course materials and contents are developed in an open access environment and are considered as a global public good.

* In phase 3, care will be taken to design activities that are feasible, that is, possible for the time and resources available.
