This BRE course features a community economic development approach with broad-based community involvement (i.e. volunteers + professionals). In addition, the course now infuses new discussion and content on professional, continual BRE visitation approaches -- examining the relationship and differences between continuous BRE methods and the community economic development approach.
The course takes 2–4 hours per week over an 8-week period. You can work at times convenient for your schedule but staying involved on a weekly basis optimizes your experience. There are weekly videos/readings, activities, and discussion forums. Occasional live discussions feature various topics. The course will help you create a plan for your community or region's new BRE initiative or to improve your existing program.
