Sobre el proyecto
The project aims at empowering the International Voluntary Service -IVS- movement (its networks, organisations, professionals and activists) through the extension of organisational development training in Asia, Africa, America, Europe. Capacity building in organisational management was defined as a crosscutting priority in the White Paper of IVS 2011-21, and since then the hosting organization has been attempting to perform continuous training on these issues. Now, that it is clear that a long-term Empowerment and Monitoring system for the members is needed, the network has developed a powerful organisational development training method, the STEP (Strategic Training for Empowerment Processes). This method proved to be successful during 2017 and 2018, and STEP to the Future is an opportunity to keep bringing this learning among members worldwide: a learning based on their own assessment, on the experiences of similar organisations in their regions and beyond, and which leads to strategic planning.
The challenge for this project is to go beyond training specific people/organisations, but to start establishing a net, an organised group of prepared trainers, networks, organisations who can keep developing organisational development training in the 4 regions. That is why, a training for trainers in the topic is a basic to advance from: 25 professionals will be trained, from the 4 regions and also including members of the pool of trainers of different networks. Besides the TfT, a MOOC will be launched, aiming at arriving to as many organisations as possible in the future; though for the launching there will be a facilitated experience with the 23 partner organisations of the project. Besides this, there will be new STEP regional trainings in Africa and Asia, and on-field experiences in these regions and also in Europe, including local trainings and job-shadowing.
In order to ensure a real processual empowerment, follow-up for trainers and participants is foreseen to be developed by experts in the project. As well, such support will also be provided for those trainers who are encouraged to apply and find new funds in their regions that can allow to perform new STEP experiences in a decentralised scheme: more multilaterally and more decentralisation.
In the end, the seminaris willing to contribute to establish a long term process that will make the IVS movement stronger, more resilient, with their organisations being more able to resist and transform their main challenges, and in this way increase the positive impact that has been proven to be brought by international volunteering: increased intercultural capacities, active participation in the community, non-violent conflict resolution, and community development through practical work.
We are looking for a Trainer who specifically has experience in creating MOOCS, who can follow the process of the project and support in the writing of the final report.
The Trainer will join the Experts Seminar and the MOOC production event.
Experts Seminar – ESTONIA, TALLIN, 2019 18-24 JANUARY
Launching the process The first event of the project will be the consecution of 2 different activities activity: the Steering Team Meeting, and the “Experts Seminar, Towards a deep Intercultural and Multilateral Approach”. The 2 events have in common that they are going to set the basis for the rest of the process; and that they share many of the participants.
The Steering Team Meeting has the usual mission of building the team which is going to take responsibility and leadership throughout the project; create a common understanding of the process and its aims, set the priorities, distribute roles among members, clarify tasks and follow-up mechanisms. Also, of course, working in the details and needs of each activity, and particularly important to this project, agreeing on the pilot monitoring tools/mechanisms that will be implemented in this project as a basis to be adopted in the future. A very specific mission of the ST Meeting for this project is that the team, being formed by networks and leading organisations in the regions, will work to agree on the common strategic approaches for the long term, for networks+ regions to follow, regarding organisational development and the Empowerment and Monitoring programme. This will have an influence in the capacity building approaches of the movement in the next years, in the applications supported by networks and members, etc.; at least regarding organisational development needs.
Towards a deep Intercultural and Multilateral Approach will gather IVS experienced and relevant representatives from Europe, Africa, Asia and America to discuss and agree on specific challenges related to management and training at a fair global intercultural approach. Issues related to understanding and flexible paradigms; to exigence and means; and to several management issues such as leadership, decision-making, human resources. And finally addressing challenges such as self-critical analysis of the movement and networks’ action from decolonisation approaches, including also the consequences of the framing coming from the existing funds. The outcome shall be an agreed set of principles, orientations and valid models that can be adopted and used (and for sure furtherly debated), not only through the whole project, but also within the movement in the next years.
Besides this general programme, there is a secondary agenda, specific to the American organisations, to be used as an opportunity to discuss needs, strategic approaches and action in order to facilitate empowerment and networking within the countries and in the region.
There is a set of strategic needs detected during STEP1 that need to be addressed, and the generation of this space is one way how the network will provide follow-up and empowerment to American IVS orgs.
The Training for trainers on organisational development is the opportunity to create and consolidate a strong team of OD trainers for the the hosting with representatives in the 4 regions. Participants will be experienced trainers and professionals (a mix of levels within this range: for some it will be a challenge, a demanding experience; for some it will mean incorporating competences to their existing capacity, so that they can strengthen the region), who have the perspective and are prepared to get the knowledge and later perform organisational development training; this is foreseen to be a professional step ahead which can generate multiplication. The methodological basis is the STEP (Strategic Training for Empowerment Processes), created specifically for hosting, which builds from the model of the Organisational Pentagon model, as adopted from SES foundation and developed by NGO and its experts.
The model has a 3-faced potential: it provides a systemic understanding of how an organisation is structured and works; it provides a system for a deep diagnosis of the needs and potentials of an organisation; and it serves as a basis to build organisational strategies.
The training for trainers will also feed the MOOC production, in 3 ways: with reflection and discussion on contents and pedagogic style of the MOOC; with preparation of trainees who will afterwards contribute to the building of the MOOC; by creating audiovisual materials in situ, which can be afterwards used for the online platform.
Implement Global Empowerment Once the “capacities are set” the process will start to implement empowerment practices in the project.
The European on-field STEPs will follow the TfT OD, taking some of the TfT trainees from America (2), Africa (2), Asia (2), to make a strategic professional exchange with an European organisation. Trainees (now trainers) of the TfT will provide a programme of 3 days training+assessment based on the STEP method to the host organisation, and combined with that, the host organisation will provide a”job- shadowing” opportunity to this partner. This jobshadowing will focus on the organisational priorities of the trainee, which from the former diagnosis we esteem will be around the consolidation of an outgoing (sending volunteers) area; the knowledge and cooperation with international networks; and/or training for campleaders. This space is aimed as well to set some basis of strategic bilateral cooperation between the 2 organisations, which can somehow serve as a “buddy system” of mutual support and special cooperation.
STEPS TRAINING The STEPS training in Asia (Thailand, hosted by VSA) and Africa (Nigeria, hosted by VWAN) will be developed under the same programme, containing an international training on organisational development for board members and staff from the region; and a field visit, to perform in-depth training with the host organisation, assessment and (in some cases) impact measurement. The international training performs, around the Organisational Pentagon model, a strategic organisational development training, where organisations learn and discuss strategic approaches for their structure, functioning, relations, communication and financial sustainability, while at the same time this allows them to have a deep diagnosis on their needs and potentials, and it offers the movement/networks the possibility to build a detailed diagnosis of the situation in the region (which is fundamental for the latter implementation of the monitoring process). The training team is in itself an empowerment experience. It is composed of 2 senior trainers (carrying most of the training activity); and 2 junior trainers (carrying a support and audiovisual task for the reporting and MOOC). The trainers origins are mixed: > In, Africa, a senior trainer from Zimbabwe; and another one from the Alliance pool of trainers (Europe). And junior trainers from Nigeria (host), and from SCI Catalonia (Europe).
> In Asia, senior trainer from VSA (host) and SCI (Europe); and junior trainers from VPV (Vietnam) and CCIVS (Hungary-Europe). Senior trainers are more experienced professionals, who will carry on most of the training activity, though supported by the junior trainers. Junior trainers have less experience and this will be for them the opportunity to contribute in a first OD training experience as trainers, to be empowered for one when it is their turn. On the other hand, they will have a task to document audiovisually and pedagogically the training, which will feed later the MOOC production and the complementary training materials. The whole setting of a 4 trainers team, 2 regional+2 European (+from networks) has the intention to create a space for deep debate and reflection, and intercultural learning which will feed the conclusions of the project.
Once the international training finishes, the training team will first make a deep and thorough evaluation of the main different dimensions to take in account.
Then, it will be time for the on field experience, consisting on 1 day of training with board and staff of the host organisation about the central topics of the STEPS programme; and a 2nd day of an open event with local partners, which can be chosen to have a more training profile, or an impact research and debate on the local action. The on-field experience finishes with a final meeting with a report/assessment of the senior trainers with the local organisation.
The STEPs MOOC has the ambition to burst the impact and presence of the STEP proposal, by developing a tool/method/system which allows to train those IVS organisations in the different regions who cannot participate in the regular presential trainings, on the one hand; and to go in depth with those organisations which have had trainees at the TfT and now they will attend the MOOC with the local leadership of their trainee.
Besides, the tool will of course stay online and available in the upcoming years for IVS (and other) organisations.
MOOC PRODUCTION 1-8 October 2019 Hungary
The STEPS MOOC is approached in 2 main moments:
> MOOC Production Lab: A seminar oriented to production of materials, ensuring an intercultural approach and a good pedagogic approach. Will gather the experts on contents, experts on the development and expertise on MOOCs, and network and regional representatives.
> STEPS online training (MOOC): The MOOC as a tool will be prepared to work properly as an autonomous learning tool (as usual MOOCs). However, the pedagogical approach for this project is that it will be a facilitated and participatory MOOC.
