Study groups are NOT training courses. The content is studied and delivered in a peer learning environment, NOT in “teacher – student mode”. The learning outcomes are largely (fully) dependent on the commitment and effort of individual participants. The facilitators are IIBA volunteers are NOT professional trainers. The role of the facilitator is to support topic presenters and facilitate professional discussions.
