Highly interactive course on funding partnerships
- Multiple languages
- Story/scenario driven
Walkgrove created a highly interactive e-learning solution for the food assistance branch of the United Nations on strategic procedures and techniques for securing effective partnerships with funders.
The training need
Resources – funds, human resources, goods and services – are central to delivering humanitarian programmes. “Resource mobilization” (RM) refers to the processes and techniques for securing and managing resource partners.
The World Food Programme (WFP) commissioned Walkgrove to build a module on strategic and best practice RM for international and in-country staff, particularly targeting those whose roles were related to resource mobilization efforts. The course needed to equip staff to strategically identify and seize opportunities for funding and resources, negotiate with potential resource partners and manage donor relationships.
Our bespoke learning solution
Walkgrove designed and delivered a 90-minute custom e-learning course for the WFP learners on strategic partnership management, engaging partners and promoting donor visibility. The “Resource Mobilization” e-learning explains the tools and techniques of the WFP’s approach to RM and shows learners how their individual role can influence and impact successful resource partnerships.
The bespoke e-learning modules were developed at a high level of interactivity. The design includes crisp and clean learning presentation screens and animations that use minimal on-screen text to highlight essential points, accompanied by a full audio voiceover.
Animated sequences and interactive discovery-based tutorial screens demonstrate key RM principles and processes throughout the modules in a visual and memorable fashion. The illustrations include on-brand diagrams, positive photography of real world WFP field locations and explanatory icons.
Regular mini-assessments check learner understanding of RM tools and validate learning progress, while case studies of WFP resource partnerships contextualise the information and skills in the e-learning.
To improve accessibility of the e-learning, the programme was also translated into French.
