Handbooks

Our handbooks are designed to contain all the information you need in one well-structured document. We make sure to provide you with a concise reference booklet covering your particular subject.

Job aids

We design instructional tools that allow learners to quickly remember or access information as the need-to-know arises. Strong visual components on instructional cards, charts or posters give a large amount of information at one glance.

Apps

Learning apps can be used differently depending on the learners’ needs. It can include gamification tools, responsive online courses, just-in-time resources and sharing spaces. An app can also be made in a way that once it is downloaded, it is available offline.

Communities of practice

Learning is more sustainable in the community. We create online community learning and sharing spaces for peer-exchange, coaching, mentoring and long-term learning support. The online communities allow the participants to have more flexibility that facilitates a long-term commitment.

Online Facilitation Cards - Peace Pillar project

Facilitation and participation in online events can often be challenging. Technical difficulties, participants interrupting each other as well as the challenges to make learning interactive, meaningful and engaging all result
in the online space being somewhat tricky to manoeuvre. These cards were created to allow for more effective communication and smoother online meetings for both facilitators and participants, as well as enhancing interactivity and engagement. They also allow for more inclusion within discussions making sure that everyone is heard.

These facilitation cards are a set of printable and digital images that can be used to visually facilitate meetings, workshops and learning events taking place online. There are three versions that can be used separately or combined, depending on the context:

  • Smartphone version (people show their phone screens to their webcams).
  • Print-out version (Printing the cards to use instead of phones)
  • Hand Signals (People use their hands to communicate).
