During the spring of 2020, we conducted a comprehensive and wide-reaching learning needs assessment. With over 280 responses from 39 countries, we were able to gather valuable data on approaches to learning. Overall, the results of the assessment show that there is a clear need for new ways of working collaboratively on capacity development.
These are the three key priorities identified in the analysis of the results:
1. Learning design must be collaborative
2. Learning materials need relevant content but must also respect constraints of time, language, and internet connectivity (whether in-person or online)
3. Broadly sharing access to existing materials and modifying them as needed is critical (i.e. translations, contextualisation).
