15 October to 14 December 2012, Social Media tools, e-learning course

In the framework of their collaboration aiming to jointly develop a series of learning programmes in the field of knowledge management, UNITAR and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have developed the course Innovative Collaboration for Development (ICfD), an e-learning course on social media tools.

The overall goal of the course is to empower  development professionals to recognize the potential of social media and to make innovative use of these tools to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and reach of their work. The course, therefore, gives participants the opportunity to use and analyze social media tools in light of their adaptability to specific workplace contexts. 

UNITAR is pleased to announce the opening of registrations of the seventh session of the ICfD course from 15 October to 14 December 2012.

Applications can be submitted online: http://www.unitar.org/event/icfd_october. The deadline is 28 September 2012.

The course fee is USD 850. No fee reductions apply as there are no scholarships available for this session. Class will be opened with a minimum of 20 participants, on a first come first served basis.
