DELTA used the metaphor of a navigational instrument for its hands-on and practical learning and training instrument that is currently in the pipeline. The compass orients you in the way you design learning and training activities. It is a starting point that can give you inspiration in search for useful, effective and relevant learning and training methods.
ITC-ILO staff is closely involved in order to provide a learning and training instrument (or compass) that suits their particular needs and expectations. The input of an on-line survey, a focus group and individual interviews gave more in-depth understanding of the objectives, modality and characteristics of the compass.
The key components of the compass are learning methodologies and supportive IT-tools available at the ITC-ILO. The compass will provide step-by-step guidance to help ITC-ILO staff make informed decisions about the development of learning activities and choice of appropriate methods, tools and resources to undertake them. To translate in a practical way what the Turin Learning Approach stands for in terms of designing and developing training activities, in-house practical examples and cases will be included.
The release of the compass is planned by the end of 2009 and will be updated on a regular base with new and inspiring ITC-ILO experiences.
