Who should join?
This course is perfect for managers, campaigners, fundraisers, digital producers developers and others involved in planning and implementing campaigns (in agencies, NGOs, government, as consultants or independently).
It is designed primarily for people in or working with medium to large NGOs that need to do public campaigning. This is reflected in the examples, case studies and emphasis on specific models. However the principles and practices are applicable to many other scenarios.
This course is an extended version of past campaigning planning workshops. It is a continuation of an experiment with online learning that has been running for the last 24 months. Variants of this course have been tested with a medium sized NGO and 75 of their staff. This is the next evolution of the experimentation.
Learning is always more interesting with others. So despite being an online course, participants are encouraged to get to know fellow participants, to contribute to online discussions and, to form work groups directly with each other via skype, phone or face-to-face.
