UNITAR is launching a new session of the e-learning course Governance in Urban Sanitation

Wed, 17Sep2014

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is launching a new session of the e-learning course Governance in Urban Sanitation, from Monday 6 October to Friday 12 December 2014.

Course goal

This course aims to enhance the capacity of local decision-makers and sanitation professionals to make enlightened decisions and investments in urban sanitation. It provides analytical tools to understand the financial and institutional framework of the sanitation sector, taking into account the needs of urban poor communities.

Methodology

This 4-module course is based on UNITAR’s sound adult learning pedagogical principles. The modules include interactive lessons and illustrated narratives that introduce the participant to the conceptual foundations of governance in urban sanitation. Taking advantage of the opportunities of technology-enhanced learning, the learning materials are presented through various media such as text, graphs, images and video material, which contribute to better retention and enhance the learning process

Participants engage in the development of a case study, where they can apply the knowledge gained to a real-life scenario. Peer reviews and discussion forums are the other core elements of the course, organized to create collective knowledge and to facilitate interaction and experience sharing. Each module also includes self-assessment exercises as well as quizzes. A high level sanitation expert guides participants through all the learning activities.

Please see the flyer attached for further details on course description, content and workload.
