Knowledge Nuggets are a new innovative, accessible and the most affordable way for you to embark on or continue your professional development. Designed and delivered by leading academics from the University of Reading, and supported by EIT Food, these bite size courses deliver succinct, targeted training in specialised areas of the AgriFood sector. Whether you’re looking for general background to a given topic, or explanations of specific, complex ideas, Knowledge Nuggets offer a fully modular way for you to take charge of your own learning.
Knowledge Nuggets work by giving you a range of videos delivered by academics and industry specialists, along with core and supportive reading material, and allow you to purchase access to as few or as many as interest you. Many online courses offer a more traditionally broad set of learning; this approach allows you to fully customise your learning by only selecting the material that is relevant to you. The result is an enormously flexible portfolio of learning that can be tailored to exactly fit your training needs. Each Nugget comes with at least one video and a full range of supplementary reading to extend and deepen your understanding.
Through the unique personal learning portfolios that the University of Reading offers, it’s also possible to convert the learning that these videos deliver into academic credits, providing the first step towards a recognised qualification from one of the top universities in the UK.
If academicand qualifications are not for you, then Knowledge Nuggets can also be used to accrue EIT Food Accredited Professional credentials as evidence of your Continued Professional Development (more info coming soon...)
