APCICT cordially requests your assistance in filling out the needs assessment survey to help us develop a more comprehensive understanding of the themes to focus on for the How-To-Do Series.

Building on the success of APCICT's flagship programme, the ‘Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders’ (Academy), which includes soon-to-be 10 module training curriculum on various ICTD themes and has been successfully rolled out in 19 countries of the Asia-Pacific region, APCICT is initiating a new project tentatively entitled the "ICTD How-To-Do series" to assist member States in translating theoretical knowledge from the training into concrete actions.  

This is in response to the anecdotal evidence gathered from various discussions with the member States, which has revealed a strong need for practical knowledge sharing to reinforce the impact and the reach of the training programme.

 

This is a 'ICTD How-To-Do Series" primarily targeting policymakers and government officials. It aims to provide step-by-step guidelines for the roll out and management of effective ICTD initiatives, especially in a developing country setting. Each issue focuses on a specific ICTD theme and offers an end-to-end roadmap that can help policy makers in practical preparation, planning and implementation of the initiative. The emphasis will be on translating technical specifications and content into a form that can be easily referenced, understood, and applied by officials with generalist or non-technical backgrounds. The new project will be carried out in partnership with the Knowledge Sharing Programme (KSP) of the Government of the Republic of Korea.

 

In order to ensure the relevance, usefulness and success of the How-To-Do-Series, APCICT cordially requests your assistance in filling out the needs assessment survey to help us develop a more comprehensive understanding of the themes to focus on for the How-To-Do Series. 

Your comments and feedback will enable us to not only narrow down the specific ICTD themes and countries to focus on. The survey will take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete and will remain open till 24 June, 2011.
