Most significant learning that contributes to improved performance takes place outside of formal training.
It occurs through informal and incidental forms of learning between peers.
Effective use of peer learning requires realizing how much we can learn from each other (peer learning), experiencing the power of defying distance to solve problems together (remote learning), and feeling a growing sense of belonging to a community (social learning), emergent across country borders and health system levels (networked learning).
At the ASTMH annual meeting Symposium organized by Julie Jacobson, two TGLF Alumnae, María Monzón from Argentina and Ruth Allotey from Ghana, will be sharing their analyses and reflections of how they turned peer learning into action, results, and impact.
In his presentation, Reda Sadki, president of The Geneva Learning Foundation (TGLF), will explore:
- What do we need to understand about digital learning?
- Networked learning: rethinking learning architecture in the Digital Age
- Social learning: peer learning is about making human connections
- Practical examples of TGLF peer learning systems for WHO, Wellcome, UNICEF, and Bridges to Development that connect learning to change, results, and impact.
- Emergent peer learning systems driven by local practitioner and community needs and priorities.
