Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to attend all webinars to get the certificate?
No, you do not have to attend all the webinars. We will provide webinar recordings after the live session. You will be eligible for the certificate only if you successfully complete the assignment at the end of the Cogitatum. This assignment will be in the form of a Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) or a long-form essay. That said, we strongly insist that you do not skip any webinars in order to extract maximum value.
Is the Cogitatum just a set of webinars?
No, as a part of the series you will also be added to a Flock Team where you can cogitate i.e. you can reflect, comment, and interact with the fellow students and faculty even after the webinars. All readings will also be posted here.
Once you have completed the admission process, you will get an e-mail with the details on how to access Flock.
Can this series be taken by someone without being familiar with the topic?
Yes, we have designed the Cogitatum such that the students do not need a background on the topic. Anyone interested in the topic can cogitate.
How will the series be taught?
The Cogitatum will be held completely online. The five live webinars by our faculty will serve as pointers to help you explore more about the topic under discussion. At the end of the Cogitatum participants will have to complete an online assignment to be eligible for the certificate.
What happens after the webinars are over?
You remain a part of the Flock Team and you can continue the discussions on the topic with the fellow students and the experts. You will also continue to have access to the readings shared on the topic.
Will I have access to any learning material?
Yes, you would be provided reading material after every webinar to help you dig deeper on the topic covered in the webinar. The reading material will mostly be in the form of one to two online readings like research papers, articles etc.
