The MOOC, designed by NRGI, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI), the World Bank and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) for the participation of large numbers of geographically dispersed learners, will be offered twice a year. It stretches over 12 weeks and covers a range of topics including the challenges and opportunities that come with extractive industries, key political economy considerations, legal frameworks, tax policy, environmental issues, community rights, artisanal mining, economic linkages to the wider economy, and the management and investment of revenues for sustainable development.
Each week, students will have access to around 1 hour of recorded video lectures, led by a diverse faculty of world class experts and practitioners, including Prof. Sir Paul Collier and Prof. Jeffrey Sachs. In addition to key background readings for review and engagement in online forums and quizzes to consolidate learning, students will have the opportunity to ask questions to experts in weekly live Q&A sessions. The course is particularly suitable for those who seek to build a solid comprehensive understanding of the field. Access to the course requires a reliable internet connection to be able to view the videos.
The first facilitated edition of the MOOC will begin on 1 February 2016, with registration open now. A second edition launches in September 2016. The course will then repeat annually at approximately the same dates.
In addition to the MOOC, NRGI will be running several residential courses throughout 2016. For more information please visit: http://www.resourcegovernance.org/training/training-courses-2016 .
