Leveraging Digital Learning for Organizational Impact

June 29, 2018

This longer article/paper will leverage all three webinars. The employee retention/capacity development need is the problem statement, changing learning culture through digital learning is the solution, and then issues to consider when launching a digital learning program is a "how to get started." Will include profiles of some of our cooperating FSPs. Good fit for Microfinance Gateway.

Brief: Collaborative Partners in Development

October 31, 2018

FI audience will be more donor focused and less FSP focused. This may include collaboration and content co-creation and all the ways we engage partners. We will look at FSPs and TSP and other stakeholders. We may discuss vendors. We will discuss program and platform and course offerings and project management. Could pull from ICT4D and eLearning Africa

JA: Lessons in Adaptive Management

December 21, 2018

For International and Capacity Development audiences - Will likely be updated as we continue to learn lessons. Will discuss KPIs and how we use data to manage the project. May include sprint teams. How we incorporate feedback from partners, the board, users and other stakeholders.

Concept Note: individual/organization/systems change

WP: Creating the Market and the Marketplace

March 31, 2019

For International Development, Capacity Development and FI - Aligns with marketing pulls in the work plan and the marketing strategy. Good candidate for CGAP publication.

Interactive series on Partners in Learning

April 1, 2019 - September 1, 2019

Six-part series - with a deliberate attempt to bring in TSP voices. Tie into community of practice, leveraging themes and participants as voices. Format choice should be tied to research on target audience.
