The Human Resource Training Center of Environment and Forestry (Pusdiklat LHK) conducted a workshop on strategy development for eLearing from 2 – 4 May in Bogor. The workshop aimed at reviewing the implementation of eLearning development and to formulate strategies for future eLearning implementation. 40 people representing structural officials and trainers from Pusdiklat LHK and the Training Agency of Environment and Forestry (BDLHK) participated in the workshop.
During the opening of the workshop, the Head of Pusdiklat LHK emphasized the importance of legislation related to eLearning as a reference and legal basis for its application. Furthermore, the Head of Planning, Evaluation and Development of eLearning in Pusdiklat LHK, Ir. Agus Widoyoko, announced that, due to budget decreases for training activities in 2017, eLearning can be one solution to provide high quality training despite budget constraints. In addition eLearning can accelerate the achievement of Pusdiklat LHK’s performance indicators (IKK) to train 50,000 people over the next five years.
GIZ FORCLIME has been cooperating with AIZ, a GIZ training institution, for mentoring eLearning development in Pusdiklat LHK since September 2014. The workshop is part of AIZ’s exit strategy in the training center, as AIZ support to Pusdiklat LHK will end at the end of 2016. Some achievements of this cooperation include: completion of four blended learning modules; testing of the blended learning method; establishment of a eLearning team; strengthening the capacity of structural officials, lecturers and staff related to eLearning; and establishment of eLearning networks.
