INASP ICT Training Methodology

INASP's 'travelling' training methodology has been developed through extensive engagement and feedback from partner organisations in library, university and research communities.

The key characteristics of the methodology are:

  • In-country training: promotes training that reflects and responds to participants daily working environment
  • Multi-participant/single-site: encourages peer-support via a critical mass of trained people in each location
  • National and regional facilitators: builds local skills and capacity both in the subject area and in the development and delivery of the training programme
  • National and regional 'cascades': supports networking, capacity building and extensive, cost-effective sharing of skills and training
  • Modular training materials: generates an adaptable resource bank of high-quality training and support materials.
  • On-going monitoring and evaluation: maintains high standards and on-going improvements and response to learning.
  • Participative: enhances learning and knowledge sharing through hands-on, practical exercises and activity-based group work

Further details of the process, benefits and history of the travelling methodology are available.
