How does the Geneva Learning Foundation’s approach break the norm?

Reda SadkiThe Geneva Learning Foundation

100% digital 100% human: using the latest learning technologies and interfaces, we adapt our digital networking interfaces to learner needs and habits to augment their digital and networking capabilities.  Grounded in experience: we foster problem-solving that values both participants’ lived experience and the world’s best available global knowledge.  We open access: participation can be opened for all, across geographic, sectoral or institutional barriers.  New knowledge is created through peer learning: national and international practitioners sharing experience, giving and receiving feedback, and using this new knowledge to solve problems together.  We build trust and mutual respect: safe spaces encourage authentic sharing of experiences to learn what actually works, how, and why.  Driven by intrinsic motivation: proven high engagement rates with no per diem or other extrinsic incentives.  Sustainability built-in: 78% of TGLF programme participants feel “capable” of using TGLF’s methodology for their own needs, and 82% want to organize their own activities using it with their colleagues.  To learn more about the …

The Geneva Learning Foundation: Spanning the full spectrum of learning

Reda SadkiThe Geneva Learning Foundation

We empower practitioners to tailor learning experiences that fit their own needs to drive change: Participants do not  stop work to learn, every step of the process is embedded in and focused on their daily work. Typical learning events include:   “Hackathons”: 2 to 4 days fast-paced context and challenge analysis and idea generation “Peer learning exercises” : 2 to 4 weeks, on and offline facilitated learning among and between practitioners and international experts, including knowledge sharing, situational analysis and action planning.    “Full Learning Cycles”, a nurturing space for learners and leaders over several months to explore and take action together, identifying common challenges, generating and sharing ideas, testing innovative solutions, and implementing action plans.

How local practitioners use the Geneva Learning Foundation’s approach to accelerate progress to impact

In the final stage of a comprehensive TGLF learning programme, alumni implement action plans they have developed together. We compared the implementation progress after six months between those who joined this final stage and a control group that also developed action plans, but did not join.

How the Geneva Learning Foundation uses learning science to drive change

Reda SadkiThe Geneva Learning Foundation

As developed by our founders, the TGLF learning-to-impact pathway draws on the best available evidence and our own practice in the learning sciences and multiple other disciplines.  TGLF’s diagnostic instruments rapidly identify the most effective strategies to develop people, teams, and networks to drive change and performance.  Working with our network of founders and advisors, our approaches are continually honed and improved to ensure their effectiveness.  For example, TGLF co-founder Karen E. Watkins, working with Victoria Marsick, developed the framework proving the strong correlation between learning culture and organizational performance. This evidence-based framework is central to the Foundation’s learning-to-impact pathway.  Marsick, V.J., Watkins, K.E., 2003.
