Online Learning in Diplomacy

29 May 2006 - 30 May 2006

Geneva

Event description

Given the wide geographic distribution of diplomatic services, online learning is the natural answer to the training needs of diplomats, bridging the limitations of space and time and connecting people over great distances. Decision makers must address a number of practical questions in order to introduce meaningful online training programmes to their ministries. This process involves the need to resolve institutional issues, solve technical problems, and manage cultural changes. This workshop provided practical guidance for the introduction of effective, learner-centred, and relevant online learning programmes for diplomats.
