Format and Methodology
The ITC promotes a three-phased approach in its learning activities:
- Distance phase (online platform): two weeks before the Face-to-face (residential) phase, during which participants can access initial information on the course content, follow an introductory module and select the elective course they wish to attend.
- Face-to-face phase (residential): which combines lectures and discussions, as well as case studies, role-play exercises and group work.
- Follow-up phase (online platform) : during which participants can access course material, as well as new resources online, and can continue discussion and consultation with other participants and experts on the internet through the Forum discussion of the online platform but also with the alumni of former editions of the LMA through social network groups, such as Facebook and Twitter.
During the LMA:
- An action-oriented, highly participative approach will be used, with particular attention devoted to sharing international experiences with a view to their adaptation and practical application.
- Training methods will combine lectures and discussions, case studies, open space debate, role-play exercises and group work using up-to-date learning methods and technologies.
- Particular attention will be paid to the presentation of “good practices” through case studies reflecting experiences already gained locally and internationally, with a view also to contributing to the ILO good practices database on labour migration policies and programmes.
