    Previous Participants Said

    “Thank you for organising the delivery of this course through Zoom which went really well.  The breakout rooms were a novel and worthy idea. It is also good to have the slides which will be very useful resources for our work”.

    “Big thanks to all three speakers, today´s sessions were excellent and we have a lot food for thought for our programming (which is well underway).“

    Methodology

    A workshop by Lexxion Publisher offers the possibility to meet with experts from EU institutions, Member States as well as the private sector. The different perspectives of our experienced trainers will support you in applying complex rules to your practical day-to-day work. To achieve the best results, a mix of learning methods will be applied in the course.

    Our approach combines the three stages of learning to ensure that the participants obtain the best possible understanding of the applied rules:

    1) Identification of the main rules and principles,
    2) Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
    3) Application of the rules and principles.

    The participants will be actively involved in the course. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunity to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

    Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the course. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.

    Course materials are available for download after the event.

    Online Course

    During the online course by Lexxion Publisher all speakers present live via video and audio. Participants are actively involved in the online courses. By offering our participants the possibility to use their microphones and cameras during the whole course, we aim to recreate the atmosphere of a face-to-face Lexxion course. We encourage our participants to ask questions in real time and to take part in live discussions with speakers and other participants. Additionally, we offer breakout sessions, as part of this format, where participants work in smaller groups on real-life cases and exercises. During these exercises, participants have the technical possibility to see other group members and talk to them (using microphone and camera). Moreover, we make use of different interactive features of the online platform, such as polls, multiple choice questions and quizzes. This way participants can test their knowledge on the topic, anonymously. There are ample opportunities for the participants to present their own problematic issues, discuss and solve them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.
