The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Research and Development on Education and Training Throughout Life (CIRDEF) at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) will organize a training seminar on Responding to the challenges and emerging demands of continuing education through customized distance learning. The training will be organized in collaboration with the International Organisation of la Francophonie (OIF) and the Association of African Distance Learning Centers (AADLC), and will take place on 28 and 29 November 2016 at the Institute’s premises in Hamburg, Germany.

This training seminar aims to familiarize participants with new technologies in distance learning. In return, the participants are to share this knowledge with personnel that manage and monitor programmes in remote areas, to strengthen their capacity for action and enable them to better respond to emerging demands in their respective domains. For this reason, the training will target heads and senior trainers/managers of African distance education institutes/centres, as well as experts and resource persons in non-formal adult education and associated new technologies, who will share their knowledge with other managers in the field.
