Pedagogy, Content and Technology: the IFRC case webinar

By 2012, the IFRC's learning platform had over 22,000 active users from 185 countries, and a certificate programme in humanitarian diplomacy

June 19, 2012

In 2009, in an austerity context in which resources became scarce to organize face-to-face, classroom-based training requiring traveling bodies and materials, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies launched an e-learning platform ( platform) open to anyone with reliable Internet access to offer online courses. A year later, the Federation declared that fostering a culture of learning and knowledge sharing would become a key objective for the next decade, to stimulate new thinking, set standards, and establish curricula of relevance for its humanitarian and development work.

By 2012, the IFRC's learning platform had over 22,000 active users from 185 countries, and a certificate programme in humanitarian diplomacy, developed in collaboration with an established, accredited academic institution, had enrolled its first class. By combining innovative pedagogy rooted in teaching to community-based volunteers from vulnerable communities, content grounded in its unique experience as a global humanitarian movement with local roots, and e-learning technology, the Red Cross Red Crescent Learning Network has developed a sustainable model for "new learning" adapted to the needs of tomorrow's humanitarian and development workers.

Join us as Reda Sadki, Senior Officer Learning Systems and Learning Platform Administrator at IFRC speaks on developing learning systems and her 18+ years of experience building effective learning systems that maximize cost effectiveness and support subject matter experts' ability to prepare, package (design) and disseminate content.
