You might be wondering...
What do you mean when you say the training series is "in beta" or is a "beta test"?
We are experimenting with a multi-format collection of tools, templates, and resources and seeing how we can combine interactive elements such as live sessions to enhance your learning.
As we are launching Embracing Complexity for the first time and presenting training content in new ways, we consider this to essentially be a "test run". We will be seeking feedback from participants to inform future iterations of this training series as well as new TCI courses in development.
Are there prerequisites for Embracing Complexity?
All participants must have completed our free online mini-course, Inspiring Change 2.0. You can enroll now and access it immediately.
This special training series assumes you have foundational knowledge of how to design and implement interventions and that you are trying to implement them in complex systems.
If you have specific questions and want to see if Embracing Complexity is right for you, please email us.
How long will I have access to Embracing Complexity?
You will have access to all materials until December 31, 2021.
What if I can’t attend a live session?
All live sessions will be recorded and posted on our online platform for you to view whenever it's convenient for you.
Will I fall behind if I can't attend a live session?
Not at all! The live sessions will be recorded. We encourage you to attend the live sessions if your schedule allows so you can participate and interact with other participants; however, we know that might not be possible. All of the module content (i.e., videos, podcasts, tools, and templates) and recordings of the live sessions will be available to you when you have the time to work on them.
Can I participate in more than one live session per week?
In order to accommodate all participants, we ask that you register for only one live session per module. We'll be delivering each module's live session at least twice per week (i.e., the same session at two different times). In order to ensure each live session is at a size that is conducive for effective group learning, we may add additional time slots based on the final registration numbers.
I’ve taken Implementation, Spread, and Scale. How will this special training series be different from what I learned in the course?
Implementation, Spread, and Scale introduced the foundational concepts from implementation science that relate to how we actually do implementation, spread, and scale. This includes examining readiness and context, implementation teams and supports, adaptations and sustainability.
In Embracing Complexity we take it a step further by showing you different approaches that you can use to understand complex problems and to overcome implementation challenges specifically for change efforts at the systems level.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes! We offer discounts for past Designing for Implementation participants, past Implementation, Spread, and Scale participants, groups of 3+ employees from the same organization, full-time students, and individuals in low- and middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank.
Please e-mail [email protected] for more information.
Are there any benefits for members of the Implementing Change Community?
Yes! You can participate in this special training series for free as it's included in your membership. Please check the members-only online platform for details on how to register.
