and produce education material
At Real Options we take pride in producing education material
developed with stakeholders. We
use plain English and have particular skills in taking complex
technical or scientific information and making it accessible to
a broad audience. Our projects also aim to share the knowledge
and insights gained from the projects development.
We have proven expertise in using an action learning framework
which is a participatory and flexible model of education, that
encourages responsiveness to local knowledge and skills and the
needs of all stakeholders.
