Providing high quality training
We believe that the quality of the training we provide is a crucial factor in the effective development of skills, knowledge and attitudes.
Working with our partners we aim to:
- train trainers rather than end users: creating a body of individuals skilled in pedagogy as well as technical content
- build commitment to training in local institutions and organisations so that succession plans and maintenance of training skills are in place
- embed training capacity in national institutions and structures: this means working with library schools and research institutes to develop curricula that will help produce a new generation of well-trained research and information professionals who can contribute to a strong research and knowledge system
- extend our work via online learning: we provide e-learning versions of a range of our training courses to allow the extension of our work and easy take up and integration of our content by others. We use open standards and licenses to allow harvesting and re-use of such materials.
