Introduction to Geneva Internet Governance
Online pre-posting training for diplomats
30 June–3 August 2014
This course offers a tailored and effective view of the fast-evolving landscape of Internet governance. This targeted training will benefit diplomats whose agenda includes Internet governance and other Internet-related policy fields (e.g. telecommunications, human rights, cybersecurity, trade). The course is organised within the Geneva Internet Platform, an initiative of the Swiss authorities operated by DiploFoundation.
The five-week course is delivered entirely online and is based on a collaborative approach to learning, involving a high level of interaction. Reading materials and tools for online interaction are provided through Diplo’s online classroom. Each week, participants read and discuss the lecture texts provided using hypertext entries; the tutor and other participants read and respond to these entries creating a group dynamic. During the week, participants complete additional online activities (e.g. further discussion via blogs or forums). At the end of the week, participants and the tutor meet for an online chat session.
