Fabo Community Events

Strengthen your capacity and join the conversation 

 

Fabo Community Events

Our events bring together members of our learning community so you can build relationships with each other

 

This year we are hosting monthly Fabo sessions where we take you through thematic topics on learning, learning site design and builds, show you how to add interactive content to your learning site, demonstrate how to work with advanced interactive content, and much more. 

There will be hands-on opportunities to work directly on the learning platform with Learning Lab support. 

Throughout the year, we will also host member meetups where you will get a chance to learn from other members and see how they use the Fabo community and platform to support their programmatic work.

All community events are open to all Fabo members. If you are not a member and wish to take part, please write to info@fabo.org for more information. 

Monthly Fabo Sessions

Every month, Fabo Learning Lab hosts a 45-min session on various topics related to learning and content creation on the Fabo platform. Some of these sessions will be followed by hands-on work by participants. We want to provide frequent capacity-building opportunities so you can regularly join a session to upgrade your Fabo skills. 

Good to know
These sessions are open to all Fabo members. Make sure you already have a user profile before coming to the session. And you'll avoid too much waiting time if you already have a blank site to work on when we get to the hands-on part of the session.
