The Ministry of Environment and Forestry arranges the road map of e-learning development 2019-2024
Aiming to prepare the eLearning development roadmap of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) 2019-2024, the Center for Education and Human Resources for Environment and Forestry (Diklat SDM KLHK), in collaboration with GIZ and the World Bank Forest Investment Program (FIP) conducted a workshop on the 13th – 14th September in Jakarta. The roadmap will be used as a reference for the development of e-learning in the next five years. The workshop was attended by 50 participants from various technical directorates of KLHK, the Institute of State Administration (LAN), the Financial Education and Training Agency and international institutions/projects.
In his remarks, the Head of the Human Resources Planning and Development Agency (BP2SDM) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry said that human resources were increasing, and their distribution was widespread all over Indonesia. They need capacity building to improve their work performance. However, budget for capacity building is limited for the implementation of classical training. Therefore, e-learning education and training becomes one option to meet the needs of capacity development regarding human resources. The development of e-learning which was initiated in 2014 by the Training Center LHK in collaboration with GIZ and AIZ, is expected to move forward substantially in the future.
During the workshop, participants discussed priority trainings which will use e-learning, supporting policies and regulations that need to be prepared, strategies to mainstream e-learning into the Echelon 1, identifying facilities needed for HR development and testing competency of e-learning participants.
