E-Trainers Training for e-Learning at the National Institute of Public Administration

GGGI and Indonesia’s National Institute of Public Administration (Lembaga Administrasi Negara/LAN) conducted e-trainers training sessions on October 25-27, 2018, at the Hall of the College of Public Administration LAN, Jakarta, attended by 23 participants from the Green Growth Working Group, LAN’s Widyaiswara Unit, and LAN Technical and Functional Training Center.

This training aimed to broaden participants’ insights and capabilities in developing digital learning methods, increasing delivery techniques and improving performance of e-learning facilitators. Participants were equipped with theory and practice of creating instructional design and multimedia-based teaching materials including voice recordings of lectures and video screencasts. All training material was sharpened by personal branding and total look because the facilitator was also the ambassador of the subjects he or she delivered, so it was also important to strengthen the facilitator’s soft skills.

The activity was in line with LAN that is developing and implementing e-learning methods in some of its training programs and training support activities. Some of the subjects such as an English language training, a protocol training and other basic training experience for prospective civil servants have been developed in digital form. Since 2018, the application and interview process for participants of the Reform Leader Academy (RLA) program at the Technical and Functional Training Center have been conducted online to improve time and cost efficiency, streamline the process, and reach more participants. This LAN’s e-learning spirit is in line with GGGI’s vision, especially in reducing carbon footprint.

Still in the same spirit, the PEH Training will be developed digitally and uploaded to the PEH LAN learning management system (LMS) to reach all civil servants throughout Indonesia. This training also prepares prospective PEH Training facilitators—including PEH e-learning—who are skilled, enticing and innovative, hence impactful.
