+++ Important information on CLI's online learning offers +++

While the Corona Virus has caused disruptions in our personal and professional lives, it also invites us to be mutually supportive and innovate our way into a new future.

Therefore, CLI develops the following training formats of on-site courses into complete online sessions:

From May onwards, all trainings which are scheduled and cannot take place on-site due to closed borders or prohibition of events, will take place online.


What are the advantages of running courses online?

  • Participants save on travel and accommodation costs
  • Facilitators pairs can come from anywhere in the world
  • Participants can come from anywhere in the world, it is easy to include additional participants
  • Showing respect during a pandemic
  • less CO2 emissions
  • The course will be recorded, turned into user-friendly short sessions and participants can always use it
  • New edutaining forms of facilitation are possible in digital environments.

We have the tools, methodologies, and competences to deliver all of our trainings in high quality, digital formats. See e.g. our DIGIPEER and other projects.

Snapshots of CLI's online trainings

CLI offers other formats of online learning that supplement our trainings or can also be used as resources for individual learning. However, to dive deep into the topics of stakeholder collaboration and collective leadership, we recommend participating in our intensive trainings.


In our online academy we run webinars on the topics of collective leadership and stakeholder collaboration.

All webinars are free and open to everybody interested in our topics.

Virtual Reality Training Centre

The 3D Learnspace is the next generation in virtual education and has been developed by CLI’s cooperation partner WBS to enable meeting online as a group again for additional trainings, and sharing experiences after an in-person course. It creates an online space where course participants can meet and learn just like in real life. It adds gamification aspects that make it fun to use. And, it supports the in-person learning with an engaging and stimulating follow-up experience.

The 3D Learnspace is a paid service which we could offer to everyone: From individual coaching, small group trainings for 6-12 people, up to online events with 40 persons. It needs nothing more than a laptop and a stable internet connection. Feel free to request your individual offer:

For more information on the 3D Learnspace platform and our next open courses there, check the more information and registration section below.
