Humanitarian Distance Learning

Focus Blended Learning

LEARN AS YOU WORK AND WORK AS YOU STUDY

A concept that convinces more and more humanitarian professionals and is increasingly recognized in their respective organizations.

The course literally comes into the working environment of participants. The focus is to have students reflect on their current practice as they learn,” explains course co-coordinator Sandrine Delattre.

And a participant added: “I have learned much more in this Certificate of Advanced Studies – also from and with my experienced classmates – than during my BA. I am now ready to improve humanitarian action.” (Solomon Tazeb, 2017)

NOT EVERYBODY CAN TAKE ONE YEAR OFF TO STUDY

Organizational and individual capacities need to be strengthened in the fast-evolving humanitarian field to address the scale and complexity of present and future needs. However, multiple challenges (financial, professional, private) may prevent enrolment in residential programmes. CERAH’s blended learning programme “Designing Strategies and Projects for Humanitarian Action” is an adapted solution for middle and senior managers who want to reinforce their knowledge and skills at workDuring the eight-month course, the e-learning modules cover sixty thematics which students confront with their realities as they work. A residential session in Uganda brings all participants together for 2 weeks to work in situ on strategy design and programme development for and with the local NGO Omoana House.
