Presentation Panel

The Challenge of Learning in the Humanitarian Sector

Date Friday, Nov 25  Time   –    Room Charlottenburg I

When does the humanitarian sector make time for training? How can the staff in responsible roles be supported and become engaged in their development? 

In this session we focus on strategies which cater to the training needs of the staff in the humanitarian sector. What has worked in practice, what has failed? How can we use ICT better? And – perhaps most importantly – how can we design well for learning technologies, widening access, participation and engagement, often on a limited budget?
