USIP Course: Strengthening Capacity by Training, Mentoring, and Advising



The U.S. Insitute of Peace has many exciting courses coming up. The Strengthening Capacity course is looking for participants/practitioners that often work in the field and want to sharpen their skills and knowledge about how to transfer or develop capacity in post-conflict or conflict environments. The course runs from February 7-11, 2011 in Washington DC.  


In brief about the course:

A major task facing individuals engaged in complexoperations is to build the local capacity of civil society organizations, the military, business groups, and government bureaucracies. Well-versed as these practitioners are in their areas of specialization, they often have limited experience in educating, training and mentoring others. This course covers the fundamentals of how to develop and transfer professional capacity in fragile states, for instance: designing and implementing teaching and training programs; engaging adult learners; establishing effective mentorship programs; dealing with political, social, and cultural differences; facilitating cooperative relationships and teamwork; understanding and managing expectations; coalition-building with local groups and leaders; and raising controversial topics.

I wish this course will be offered on Weekends or in the evening 6-9 to allow those of us who have day jobs to attend.
