The Forum will explore innovative learning ecologies throughout the entire learning management cycle and provide specialist tracks for those who want to know more about transformational learning, visual learning, mobile learning and gamification.
Sustainable Development Goal 17.9 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the dedicated target to capacity building that aims to “Enhance international support for implementing effective and targeted capacity building in developing countries to support national plans to implement all the sustainable development goals, including through North-South, South-South, and triangular cooperation”. Goal 4 is completely dedicated to education and learning and focuses on ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning. Learning and training needs will be part of the larger capacity development process linked to institution building, organisational structures and processes, and national policy frameworks. The Training of Trainers Forum does not exclusively focus on the training of human resources, but should be viewed as part of a larger strategic picture.
The International Training of Trainers Forum is a recurring network and capacity development event that serves as a meeting place for capacity development policy makers, practitioners, trainers, facilitators, knowledge brokers, chief learning officers and staff development specialists.
The 2016 edition will seek inspiration from emerging trends such as:
• Growing focus on measuring learning;
• Increasing use of blended learning designs;
• Redesigning learning spaces;
• Advancing cultures of innovation
Delivering training at massive scale through Massive Online Open Courses has been omnipresent in the last ve years. How can we further scale up the world of learning?
Are there different options out there to stimulate crowd-learning? How can we tap into collective intelligence and make it accessible to all?
How can learners better connect than before? New devices have been brought in and outside our training rooms to connect more and better (Bring your own mobile device). Participants are still connected when they leave the classroom and learning continues anytime, anywhere.
Innovative pedagogical processes change the way we think about learning and training? Digital storytelling offers new perspective where we combine ancient traditions with new learning technologies. Flipped classrooms change how we re-purpose the value of class time for in-depth reflections and conversations while we prepare ourselves with online audio-visual lectures and exercises.
