LINGOs will be at Learning Solutions Conference and Expo on next week in Orlando – and has lots going on. In addition to spending quality time with our members, partners, volunteers and several of our board members at the eLearning Guild’s always interesting event, we will be announcing the return of the competitive element to the Global Giveback and representatives from International NGOs and eLearning volunteers will join LINGOs staff members at the SolutionFest 2013.
Back by Popular Demand
The eLearning community’s high level support and volunteerism is bringing back the popular Global Giveback Competition. LINGOs Executive Director Eric Berg will announce the fifth Global Giveback at the Learning Solutions Conference General Session on March 7th.
Any course created on a volunteer (pro-bono) basis for any non-profit working globally to improve people’s lives in the developing world in 2013 can be entered in the competition.
This is bigger than past Global Giveback events in that participation is not limited only to international development non-profits that are members of LINGOs. Stay tuned for Eric’s announcement at the Conference and future posts here on an updated Global Giveback site and in the Global Giveback group on LinkedIn.
Solution Fest 2013™
Representatives from several of our member agencies will be participating with us in the first Solution Fest, helping us to demonstrate key learning solutions for people working in humanitarian relief, health, development, conservation and social justice.
We believe that the better they do their jobs, the more the most vulnerable people on earth will have enough to eat, have access to health care and education, have a chance at a secure livelihood and be able to live in a safe and clean environment.
The Challenge: How to make world-class learning opportunities available at no cost to anyone working to improve lives in the developing world?
