This section is part of the pre-learning phase of the 1st ILO Academy on South-South and Triangular Cooperation (hold in Turin, Italy on 11-15 July 2016). It was primarily designed for participants of the SSTC Academy, but it is also open for anyone who is interested in the topics covered by the Academy or is willing to know and interact with its participants.

The pre-learning phase of the SSTC Academy introduces basic principles and key questions related to the topics which were tackled during the face-to-face sections of the Academy. During this phase, participants also started knowing each other and had the chance to express their views, concerns and needs before they met in person in Turin.

What to do?

a) Read the introductory text presented in each module. It was designed to introduce the topic of the module and to stimulate preliminary conversations in the discussion forum.

b) Watch the short videos presented in the modules. They complement the texts and introduce some key people who are experts in the topics.

c) Have a look at the supplementary material presented in each module. Through this material you can focus and deepen you knowledge on the specific points and issues which interest you the most.

d) Read and think about the suggestive questions presented in each module (they were elaborated to encourage participants to express their views, concerns and needs). Write your answers to the questions in the discussion forum.

e) Join the conversations in the discussion forums (each module has one different forum). The forums are the main channels by which the interaction happened in the pre-learning phase of the SSTC Academy. Through them you can read what other participants have written, you can express yourself by means of “posts” and you can engage in conversations through “replies” to the posts of other people. This is also a good time to introduce yourself to others and to express your particular interests and expectations. In addition, the experts who are carrying out the modules and other ILO key people are also participating in the conversations, so this is your chance to start interacting with them. You can login to the discussion forums directly with your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter or Google) or you can login just with your email. Notice that you have to “subscribe” to each forum in order to be notified when other people post or reply to your posts (this is very important in order to be able to follow the discussions).
