The Center of Forestry Education and Training (CFET) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry has the target to train 41,800 people over the next five years. This number is three times higher than the target achieved during the period of 2009-2014. One of the strategies to meet this objective is through e-learning, which means learning by using electronic media.
To introduce e-learning to the existing teaching materials at CFET, GIZ/ AIZ facilitated a workshop for 25 participants from CFET and other Forestry Training Agencies on 11-12 December 2014 in Bogor. The Head of the Planning and Forestry Human Resource Development Department (BP2SDMK) was present at the event and appreciated the development of the e-learning programme initiated by CFET and GIZ FORCLIME. He also expressed his commitment to support the e-learning programme, including financial support for various activities through budget sharing mechanisms with FORCLIME.
An advanced workshop which will be held in February 2015 to follow up on the workshop and finalize the training materials as well as to design an online system for e-learning.Also, in close collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME, CFET has already drafted self-learning training materials to be used during the celebration of Forester Day in March 2015.
