The output for a student after completing the online course is a workbook in electronic or printed version.
The first feedbacks are very positive. Students had appreciated the most an opportunity for self-reflection: “The course forced me to think about myself, my skills, priorities, goals, what do I want and what I don´t want to do in the future. By writing both my questions and my answers into a workbook, I can come back to them after some time and evaluate what I´ve planned and what I´ve managed to achieve.”
