What is the Orientation Session?
Throughout the course, you have the option to join orientation sessions, weekly workshops and 1:1 sessions with your facilitator. These sessions are not compulsory and do not count towards your completion of the course. However, we recommend that you attend to stay connected with the community and your facilitator, to receive further coaching on the design of your capstone project, and to ask any questions you may have.
During the first week of the course, learners are strongly recommended to attend one of the live orientation sessions where the course facilitators introduce the course and what to expect during the 5 weeks. The session allows you to meet your facilitator and peers, ask questions, and participate in discussions. To provide learners with flexibility, there will be 2 identical sessions to attend (no need to attend both as they are the same). However, if it is not possible to attend either session, there will be a short pre-recorded orientation session available on the learning platform.
