                Two to three times during each course, students participate in guided live classroom sessions consisting of lectures, case discussions, and/or group activities. These live sessions are offered during evenings/weekends and are announced by the instructor at the beginning of each course. They also are recorded and made available to students within the digital platform. These sessions provide participants with real-time contact with faculty and other students. This mix of digital and live sessions maximizes learning and flexibility.
                 
                In addition to live classroom discussions, faculty are available to students during online office hours offered through the digital classroom platform. Office hours afford students the opportunity to interact informally with faculty and ask questions about course material and assignment feedback.
