How should the presentation’s content level be listed?
Foundational: Sessions provide broad information, awareness and understanding of a topic with limited or no prior knowledge or experience of the subject required. They transfer new information without substantial prerequisite knowledge to process or use it. This level is appropriate for participants with limited experience of the subject area seeking to learn fundamentals, those looking to fill in gaps to solidify their skill set, and individuals new to the field.
Applied: Sessions focus on extensive application, comprehension, and implementation with in-depth material or explanation by the presenter, preparing learners to exhibit a definitive skill. They are highly interactive, including case studies and assessment measures and require the learner to be more engaged, interacting with the material and using the information in practical applications, and therefore require some prerequisite knowledge. This level is appropriate for individuals with some knowledge and experience in the subject area, individuals with an established degree of competence, and for those seeking to build on, apply or enhance existing knowledge.
Strategic: Courses focus on high-level creativity, innovation and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing around of highly technical or detailed topics, preparing learners to shape organizational strategy and aid in the growth or progress of industry best practices. The course material and activities focus on problem identification, analysis and solutions while emphasizing risk-taking, autonomy and opportunities for exploration. This level is appropriate for participants with significant expertise, knowledge and experience who could be deemed an expert in the field.
