For those interested in learning more about the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy, a new online learning course on the CAP has just been launched by Groupe de Bruges in association with Associazione Alessandro Bartola/Agriregionieuropa and SPERA (Interuniversity Center on Rural, Environmental, Economic Policies) led from the University of Ancona. The course consists of eight modules and participation is free [Disclaimer: I have contributed one of the modules on the CAP in an international context]. Each module consists of one or two powerpoint lessons lasting around 40 minutes, and there are short entry and exit tests to help students assess their knowledge. Financial support for the development of the course was provided by the European Commission and the Swiss Fondation Charles Léopold Mayer pour le Progrés de l’Homme.
Already in the first month around 200 people from 30 countries had registered to take the course. This thread is open for comments and feedback from anyone who has registered and participated in the course.
