Study techniques

Medical Peace Work is full of complex issues and multi-layered problems - and an open exchange of ideas is one of the first steps in addressing problems of violence and conflict.

About study groups

In this course you are able to join a study group. To do this click on the “study group” tab at the top of the page or follow this link. If you choose to join a study group, you will learn together with up to 80 other learners who joined the group around the same time as you. Some of them will comment, reply and “like”, while others may choose to just read the conversation.


StudyGroup Bar


While study groups are optional, we highly recommend joining one to make the most of this course. Learning in groups is a powerful way to share knowledge, experience, and perspectives. By learning in this way, we can create new ideas and gain a deeper understanding than we would by learning alone.

We will give you plenty of guidance by posing questions on the issues covered through the course videos and readings. Educators will also support you along the way by participating in your study group discussions, from time to time.

If you join a study group and later wish to leave, you can do so by clicking on “leave group” on the top right of the study group page. Once you have left a group you can join another group at any time. In the group please follow the code of conduct as you do on the rest of FutureLearn.
