Learn Appeal is launching a new collaborative approach to bridging the digital divide across the UK, Africa and beyond, at this week’s Learning Technologies Summer Forum in London.
Last year’s successful #makeamodule initiative recruited industry-leading e-learning designers and developers to support the charity’s content development efforts. Now, new collaborative working groups are being launched to provide broader input into Learn Appeal and help accelerate its goals around the access and availability of learning to those most in need.
The collaboration will focus on four key areas:
Anyone with experience of, or an interest in these areas can now volunteer their time and input virtually, working with other inspirational and like-minded professionals to support Learn Appeal as the charity grows.
Lesley Price, Learn Appeal Senior Consultant explains, ‘L&D is moving more and more towards social and collaborative approaches in the workplace. We are keen to make the most of modern learning practices of course, but we also recognise that it’s challenging for people to give up a lot of their time and energy for charity. The working groups will tap into specific skills and knowledge of professionals across the learning technology space, offering unique opportunities to network and learn from others with similar expertise – as well as doing their bit for a great cause.’
Volunteers will receive external recognition of their input and have the opportunity to help shape the Learn Appeal offering and reach across the world through their work. Thanks to very generous donations from our community we now have sufficient funding to proceed with our pilot projects and the first Learn Appeal Capsule is already being put through its paces in Nepal. In partnership with The Brooke, we are helping local communities learn more about how to look after and care for their working horses, mules and donkeys which are vital to those that depend upon them.
