Blended learning and contact education in Ghent:
We want to offer the IPPE program in Ghent in an adapted version and in a strict safe way: working in very small teams, keynotes in safe rooms, debate worldwide online, hands-on workshop, study visits in very small groups, etc.
Keynotes, debate worldwide, presentations will be life streamed. Workshops will be replaced by films and discussion on MS TEAMS. Assignments are online

Keynotes, debate worldwide will be life streamed. Workshops and assignments will be in small groups partly with online coaching, partly with local teachers.
