“Sport for good” is name of the game

Torrens U announces four on-line short courses

They are created with university adjunct professor Craig Foster and are “aimed at giving people in the sports industry the skills and knowledge they need to understand how sport can be used to make the world a better place.”

The four are Sport and society, Sport and human rights, Sport leadership (“to drive positive change”) and Sport as a voice for change (“find your voice and the power to use it”).

They are free and they are here.

This is the second good-sports product of the week. La Trobe U (backed by DFAT) announced a “sports diplomacy” MOOC for athletes and officials who want to “represent and advance Australia’s interests in the Indo-Pacific and other regions,” (CMM February 22).
