Workshop Updates, March 2021

Our workshops promoting localised, gender-aware simulation development are now fully underway, offering humanitarian workers based in Jordan the opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of training and simulation design! Next week will mark the beginning for groups three and four, bringing the final two sets of participants on board for this project. Building and delivering this curriculum has been a rewarding process for the LLST team, and we are excited to offer these lessons to two new cohorts of participants.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the extensive support of the Fund for Innovation and Transformation, the Inter-Council Network, and Global Affairs Canada, along with our delivery partners CRISP Berlin and Save the Children Humanitarian Capacity Building Team (UK/MEEE) who have been with us every step of the way.

Our first two groups of participants are nearly a month into their development journey. Recently, they had the opportunity to experience one of our simulations firsthand, taking part in a shortened session of Humanitarian Perspectives: A Needs Assessment Simulation (created and facilitated alongside Danika Bouchard and Myriam Labrie-Loiselle of Humanitarian Partners / Partenaires Humanitaires). Next, we are eager to see how the workshop participants will take these lessons and develop their own simulation designs.

Of course, this means that applications for these workshops are now closed. However, continue to check in here on our blog, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or join our Mailing List in order to stay up to date on future course offerings from LLST.
