Geneva and London, 15 December 2015 – Creative Digital Solutions (CDS) and Learning Strategies International (LSi) have joined forces to develop learning experiences at global scale, strengthening LSi’s talent network of learning leaders that provides networked thinking and practical solutions to organisations seeking to do more, better, faster. We share the conviction that no single individual or organization can solve such problems alone – and that unlocking how we learn is a key component of any solution.
In our first collaborative effort, CDS made a key contribution to the learning design of a massive, open online learning system to train civil servants from Ministries of Health in 192 countries to scale up efforts against the world’s biggest killer diseases. The design and development of online learning activities involved creating a peer review essay, a rubric for peer evaluation, and a system for student self-progress reporting and tracking. The solution delivered is an adaptive course suitable for a range of audiences, including policy developers and decision makers who need to adopt and adapt global recommendations to support local, national and global health improvements.
Learning Strategies International (www.LSi.io) creates digital education solutions to reshape and transform the sharing of knowledge for humanitarian, development and global health workers. Creative Digital Solutions (creativedigitalsolutions.org/) consults on and supports the design, development and sharing of innovative and effective teaching and learning experiences.
