CT16L5 Leadership Development in Community Resilience

This program uses creative thinking, communication, collaboration, design, and future thinking to develop sustainable solutions to problems that are holding virtual communities back from thriving both pre and post pandemic. While we generally think of community as people in a given geographic location, the word refers to any group sharing something of interest. While specific examples may include a faith community, race/ethnicity, cultural community, or professional community, this program is focused on virtual world communities. Specifically, this program will embrace the dynamics of a community’s context, the need to increase engagement in a virtual world, demonstrate how successful communities share information, identify community messaging and behaviors, manage accurate data transfer, and learn to effectively network in a virtual world. During the past 3 years the need for innovative solutions that are driven from grassroots energy have become more and more important. The awareness of the need to uncover, communicate, deliver, sustain, and improve community programming is increasing. This is now all happening in a virtual world across continents and countries. Leading Community Based Projects in a Virtual World is delivered in three-5 module courses. This program will introduce communication tools to encourage virtual work groups and develop opportunities for connection with support networks from around the world.

RSD Course Versions

The pre-alpha version of a lesson is one that has not been peer reviewed yet — however, don’t worry, pre-alpha is good enough to be live! The alpha version is an early version of a peer reviewed lesson that is part of a dedicated evaluation process. The beta version includes almost all of the final content, videos, etc. yet it may still need to be tweaked somewhat.

The reason for making the pre-alpha version live is that we are actively engaging with our ‘early adopter’ crowdfunding students and contributors so that we can build the best course possible. The completed alpha versions of the entire course will be live from the 1st March 2024.

The beta versions will hopefully be released by 1st August 2024. The ‘completed & refined’ release of the RSD Course (English) should be available at the end of 2024. The course will then be translated into other languages — around 10 languages at first, and then more according to demand.
