The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) WMO Global Campus is the collaborative network of WMO Member institutions and National Meteorological Hydrological Services involved in the development and delivery of education and training. Its goal is to address the evolving global priorities for learning. It is the fruit of the synergies, sharing and cooperation within this community of institutions.
In keeping with the concept of a WMO Global Campus as a community of practice, WMO is initiating the publication of a volume of short papers describing case studies of innovations implemented by partners in the Education and Training Programme (ETRP). The goal of creating this volume is to inspire community members to try new methods and implement new types of courses that effectively fill education and training gaps.
WMO is seeking short papers to become chapters in the final publication. Appropriate contributions would include papers describing innovations involving:
- Introduction of new teaching/learning delivery modes
- Application of new learning technologies
- Innovative use of teaching methods to improve learning
- Methods to enhance the long-term impacts of training
- Use of new evaluation techniques, particularly to measure long-term impacts
- Methods to increase the reach of teaching/training to more learners
- New methods to certify and demonstrate learning achievements
- Training needs assessment processes
- New efforts to implement training associated with WMO Competency Frameworks
- Training designed to address new and emerging content areas in creative ways
- Implementation of new organizational training and learning processes
- Collaborative efforts to increase efficiency and leverage expertise
- Other related topics you might propose that fit the general themes of the Global Campus
The deadline for submission of initial Proposals (500 words) is 1 December 2018. For more information on the publication, see the Call for Proposals.
