    Course proposals that include the following will be looked on favourably by the Short Course Selection Committee:

    • Demand – Courses should attract 50 or more attendees.
    • Non-commercial content – Courses are meant to educate participants. Sales presentations with branding and promotional aspects are not suitable for the program.
    • Case studies – Successful courses include a balance of theory, case histories, real world examples and applications
    • Exercises and/or group activities – Exercises and other breakout sessions keep the audience engaged and allow for one-on-one discussion between participants and presenters
