Learning is a process and not an action.
At BAIF, we are taking steps to make e-learning an important activity for internal and external capacity building. e-learning has completely transformed the way in which training is imparted. Unlike traditional chalk and board method of teaching, e-learning offers many advantages such as content development by domain experts who are not able to deliver lectures physically at every location; trainees are not required to travel and incur expenditure on travel and stay for the training program; scalability, reduced costs and effectiveness.
Trainings for External Audience
At the present juncture, dissemination of best practices and package of practices for farming and allied sectors can be identified as one pathway towards nurturing sustainable rural livelihoods. Such training will be able to save on farm costs or earnings out of sale from products/services, or both. e-learning will provide participants the ability to accommodate learning in their lifestyles and effectively allow even the remotest person to take up training.
BAIF has thus conceived a programme for promotion of such farm based entrepreneurial and allied online training. These courses are available on different themes including livestock based livelihood, crop based livelihood, natural resource management, quality of life, enterprise development and community based development. The courses are available in various languages such as Hindi, Marathi and English. Learning services will be provided through BAIF Agro and Biotechnology Pvt. Ltd. (BABTPL). The participants can now learn anytime and from anywhere with just-in-time information and guidance from experts using our e-learning facility.
BAIF has a vast research and implementation experience of 53 years in various thematic areas and different geographical locations. BAIF has been instrumental in transforming the rural landscape through application of simple but effective technologies drawing from the traditional wisdom of the rural poor. We arrange regular and on-demand webinars for research organizations and implementation agencies on different topics to share the latest happenings in the development sector. During the live Webinars, participants can interact with experts through the medium of chat, vocalize opinions, ask questions, answer questions, and more. To organize on-demand webinars and connect with experts through our webinar series, please get in touch with us.
Trainings for Internal Audience
At BAIF, we give utmost importance to staff training. Since we have operations spread across a huge geographical area, we have started conducting webinars for internal training to train more staff at the same time, as part of the Capacity Building Programme. Regular webinars are conducted for staff to enhance their skills and to stay up-to-date with changes in the development sector. These webinars help build a foundation for organizational direction, establish expectations and deliver best practices. Internal webinars are conducted on different themes including livestock based livelihood, crop based livelihood, natural resource management, quality of life, enterprise development, community based development, soft skills, management practices, etc. and are led by thematic experts, senior management or human resource professionals.
