    Practice Based

    Results Focused



    SLP 4.0 has been designed as a 'flipped classroom' and blended learning experience. It combines asynchronous and synchronous learning to increase your learning, development, practice and embedding.


    - Asynchronous Learning: These activities you will be expected to complete independently and on your own time. Activities include core learning topics, required reading, leadership assessments, short practice-based assignments, skill development and assessment preparation.

    - Synchronous Learning: These activities will be live virtual/onsite for practice-based learning, live case studies, problem solving, peer learning, Q&A and expert input.


    1. Live Sessions (synchronous/asynchronous): An extension of the traditional 'classroom experience' connect live to engage in a group discussion about the topic determined for that day, regardless of despite being seated in different locations/internationally.
    2. Online Collaborative Sessions (synchronous/asynchronous):  Well-structured, facilitated small peer group sessions. Engage in small group with other participants in practice-based learning, live case studies, problem solving, peer learning, Q&A and expert input.
    3. Online Discussions (asynchronous): These forums support 'Buddy Sessions' and also offer the possibility to connect to other group participants for discussion, Q&A and learning.
    4. Live 1:1 Face-To-Face (synchronous): individual Q&A time with an expert to answer questions.
