Participants will emerge with a strong understanding of essential principles of peacetech and a core toolkit to design programs that strategically introduce technology tools and innovation processes to their peacebuilding work.
This training course is designed for peacebuilding professionals and practitioners with a focus on hands-on learning, practical content, and applicable tools. No prior knowledge of technology tools or innovation processes is required. However, we do assume a base knowledge and experience of peacebuilding programming.
Please apply by June 1 in order to be considered.
With an estimated 20-30 hours of coursework, we recommend budgeting a minimum commitment of 5-6 hours per week and scheduling time for the course around your existing obligations. Additionally, participants will have access to all course content for at least 2 months after the completion of the course.
A weekly live meeting will be held with Build Up trainers, in which participants will be able to ask questions that have come up throughout the module. Additional support is available throughout the course via email or through the course messaging system from a dedicated Build Up course instructor.
Digital skills badges will be awarded upon completion of the course. Participants who complete at least 75% of the course, attend a final consultation meeting, and complete a course evaluation will receive a digital certificate of completion.
