FORCLIME supports creation of standardized teaching materials for young professional foresters for the purpose of FMU development

In March 2016, the Center for Education and Training of Environment and Forestry (LHK Training Center) in Bogor conducted a two-day workshop on the preparation of standardized teaching materials for forest management targeted at young professional foresters. The workshop that was carried out in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME aimed to set teaching material standards for the young professional forester programme of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, named Bakti Rimbawan. The programme, which recruits fresh graduate foresters to be assigned at Forest Management Units (FMU) throughout Indonesia, aims to fulfil the needs of technical personnel in the FMUs. The young foresters may also be assigned at the local forestry services to assist with the implementation of forest management in the field.

During the workshop several resource persons, such as the Head of FMU Rinjani Barat and the technical directorates of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry relevant to the FMU development, provided their insights and inputs regarding the prepared teaching materials.

Up to early 2016, roughly 600 young foresters that graduated from university and the vocational forestry schools were recruited through the Bakti Rimbawan programme and are now assigned at the FMUs or at the local forestry institutions.

Forestry Training Center evaluates the application of blended learning and e-learning

The Center for Education and Training of Environment and Forestry (LHK Training Center) in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME organized a workshop on 4 – 5 March 2016 in Bogor to evaluate the application of blended learning . The purpose of the workshop was to evaluate the trial conduced on implemention of the blended learning method. In addition, a quality assurance standard for future e-learning design was to be developed. This event was attended by 30 participants from LHK Training Center and Training Agency of Environment and Forestry (BDLHK).

Through quality assurance standards for e-learning it can be ensured that the BDLHK and LHK Training Center can act as training providers for e-learning and are able to measure the accomplishments of e-learning implementation. Additionally, the standar enables continuous improvement. The quality assurance standard for e-learning includes criteria and indicators, as well as general e-learning standards. Criteria and indicators are based on the ECBCheck and the Caucasus e-Learning Quality Checklist and have been adapted to the LHK Training Center and BDLHK situation. The criteria and indicators for e-learning include: management and organization (roles and responsibilities, time management, resource management), content (modules, media and evaluation), programming and implementation of training. The discussion on e-learning standards covers: templates for training design/curriculum, communication in the training, training content, implementation and evaluation of training.

The LHK Training Center and BDLHK will conduct workshops in April and May as the follow up on strengthening the institutional for e-learning implementation.
