This workshop is based on iterative-discursive didactics – in alignment with the content.

The didactics consist of three elements:

  1. Lean input of content

  3. Discourse about insights, and deepening dialog. (During our qualifications, we do not use PowerPoint, nor lecturing.)

Your host - Niels Pflaeging, Red42

About the workshop content:

  • Focus Day 1: “Beta and the BetaCodex” – what is the content, what are the principles, what is the context?
