Distance Learning

In order to support learning across the cities of the European Union, the project is developing a package of Distance Learning materials appropriate for use by political leaders, professionals, and communities in order to increase their capacity to participate in effective governance. 

The key elements are:

THEMES AND CONCEPTS Introducing the key concepts underlying the cross-national PLUS research and helping all those involved in urban governance to understand the ideas and language of CULCI

TECHNIQUES: Learning Units designed for use in urban settings explaining how to develop more effective approaches to linking leadership with community involvement

CASE STUDIES: Presenting examples of good and sometimes not so good practice, drawing on the national, city, and initiative case studies researched by the team

PERFORMANCE STANDARDS: Four units addressing issues relating to the long-term performance of urban governance and linking leadership to community involvement

The whole package will be uploaded in September 2004.
