The ODM Program is organized in 10 two and a half day module units. Emphasis is on practice (70% of group work, work in triads/pairs, individual work, feedback from faculty, assistants and peers). Between modules students are encouraged to engage in continuing practice: reading, peer supervision and individual work on self-assigned projects. Each individual determines the amount and type of practice they want to do between modules, depending on their individual life circumstances and interests. Support is provided in the form of peer mentoring and supervision from faculty and assistants. The final module focuses on the review of skills and knowledge developed and presentation of impact the School had on each student. Individual and group feedback are provided to each student.

Tuition is 3.500 EUR + VAT for Croatian (Croatian speaking) groups, and 5.820 EUR + VAT for Austrian (English speaking) groups. Tuition includes costs of enrollment, faculty staff, work spaces and all the materials. Tuition does not include student transportation, accomodation and meals.
