Online Co-op Governance Course

The Centre has collaborated with Co-operatives First to create a new online course titled Governance in Co-operatives. It will run for six weeks from 16 October to 24 November 2017 and will be freely available to anyone in the world. Governance in Co-operatives is being hosted on and is live now for registration. Six weeks, six modules, as follows:

1. What Is Governance?

2. Governance in Business

3. Governance in Co-ops and Nonprofits

4. Working Together

5. A View of the Future

6. Legitimacy

Each module is based on a case study hand picked and prepared especially for this course. There is also an orientation session prior to Module 1 and a concluding section after Module 6.

There are a couple of ways to engage with Governance in Co-operatives. You can register and simply take a look around to see what interests you and pick and choose your modules. If you complete all the modules, you can take the quiz for each one and earn either a badge or certificate of completion, depending upon your level of involvement.
