Announcemet of the second iteration of blended learning programme on "Science and Policy of Climate Change

Sangeeta Rana:

We are announcing the second iteration of our blended learning programme on "Science and Policy of Climate Change" starting from 11th April 2o14. This has been developed jointly by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) and IGES (Institute for Global Environment Strategies, Japan) in collaboration with TDLC. The programme duration for the second iteration has been increased to 12 weeks from the earlier 8 weeks and is scheduled to be conducted from 11 April to 11 July 2012. The program is now being offered to Asia-Pacific and Africa regions.

On-line registration for the program is open from 27 February to 30 March 2012. We already have a large data bank of potential participants who had expressed their interest in the program but could not be absorbed in the first course.

The programme comprises of web-based learning through video-recorded lectures, case studies, academic articles and multimedia. In addition there will be 6 video conference sessions of about 2 to 2 1/2 hours duration each. There are several features built into the design to provide inter-activity with the participants. During the video conferences we would be having world-renowned subject experts to make presentations and interact with the participants. The module VCs would also offer the participants to raise queries or suggestions regarding the specific module contents. All the VCs would also be web-cast live on the internet and their edited version would also be subsequently placed on the program website.

There would be separate discussion forums for each module through which the participants can interact with each other.

Registration charges are US$ 250 per participant, which has to be paid at the Public Information Center, The World Bank Office located at the Durbar Marg.

For detail info, please refer to the program website
Do not hesitate to contact to me for any clarification and registration.

With warm regards,
Sangeeta Rana
