2021 Online Ocean Governance Course: Study Options

This free course is being offered for both live participation and self-paced study, with a time commitment of approximately 30 hours plus readings in both cases. Before completing the application form, please review the Course Schedule for details of format and delivery including required preparation, as well as the following information. If you still have questions, feel free to e-mail IOI-Canada (ioi@dal.ca).

You may apply for one of the following options:
  • all four modules via the 16 live sessions and required preparation;
  • all four modules via self-paced study of recordings and readings in your own time;
  • one/some of the modules via live sessions if space permits, or via self-paced study.

  • Class size for the 16 live sessions will be capped to facilitate opportunities for meaningful discussion and peer-to-peer learning, but they will be recorded and made available for those choosing the self-paced option. This allows interested individuals to progress through the recorded lectures and readings in their own time. If space permits, participants may be able to register for live sessions of one or more individual modules, but priority will be given to those intending to complete all four. 

    All four modules consist of four live 90-minute sessions held twice a week, most of which are comprised of a live lecture followed by discussion period. Each module also includes a session for which participants watch two recorded lectures in preparation, and then engage in extended interaction with the two speakers fielding questions and leading discussion on topics arising from their presentations. All lectures also have recommended readings which should be reviewed prior to the sessions. These will be posted nearer the time. A certificate will be available for those who complete all the course requirements.
