Overlapping and Course-Specific Skills
Each course is designed to provide you with a unique and comprehensive learning experience. You will notice that some skills you acquire will have common applicability across multiple workshops. These are referred to as "overlapping skills." These overlapping skills serve as a strong foundation that will deepen your learning and application as you move through the different workshops.They are the building blocks that contribute to your overall proficiency and versatility.
It is important to recognize each workshop offers a set of skills tailored to the specific course content and objectives. These skills are "course-specific skills." They are designed to address the unique challenges, concepts, goals and objectives of each individual workshop.
As you participate in this series of workshops, you'll not only develop skills that have a broader relevance and can be applied across various contexts but also acquire specialized skills that directly cater to the particular focus of each workshop. This combination of overlapping and workshop-specific skills ensures a comprehensive and targeted approach to your learning journey.
