Description: IHE Delft conducts a wide range of short, intensive and highly specialized courses which are aimed at upgrading and refreshing the knowledge and skills of mid-career professional and senior experts. Short courses are meant for professionals –or groups of professionals– with a specific area of interest and a limited amount of time. The focus and content of short courses vary from specialised and technical matters to challenges and approaches in management. Many of IHE Delft’s short courses are part of an accredited MSc programme. This means that short course participants enrol in a module delivered to an international class of MSc students. This offers the opportunity to meet fellow participants from many different countries with a myriad of water related experiences. Didactical methods include lectures, assignments, individual or group exercises in the classroom, behind the computer, or in the laboratory. It’s all about active learning: each participant is responsible for his/her learning process and achievement. Active participation in all learning activities, assignments and exercises is essential, also for those who choose not to do an exam. Fieldwork, excursions and field visits to relevant sites often are a part of a short course, allowing the participants to come into contact with practical examples of the theory offered. Through case studies, role-plays, debate and workshops, content is made more interactive, and experience that the participants already have is shared.
