Road Safety Training for Academics

Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


Language English
Period 15th September - 9th December 2015

The evaluation is done in two ways: Participants have to write a portfolio, consisting of assignments on all modules of the programme. In this portfolio, they have to demonstrate how they will apply the acquired knowledge in their own job/country. Furthermore, participants are to make and give a presentation about the portfolio in front of a jury. This is followed by a Q&A session. The results of both the submitted portfolio as well as the oral presentation will be taken into consideration to evaluate the participants. The aim of the task is for participants to apply the theory, techniques and research methods of the programme to situations in their own country. In case of successful completion of the programme, participants will receive a certificate.
