We’re building a new UNITAR.org.

As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

Our Pedagogical Approach

UNITAR public finance and trade programmeUNITAR's pedagogical approach hinges on three levels of interaction. At the first level, the participant interacts with the training content. At the second level, the participant interacts with other participants to share experiences and learn in a contextual manner. At the third level, the participant interacts with international experts who moderate each e-Learning course for its entire duration. Our e-Learning courses thus attempt to create a networked learning environment, in which participants have the flexibility to learn at their own convenience and pace but also are able to interact with peers and experts through the discussion board facility.

Our Target Audience

Our courses cover a wide range of issues in the field of public finance, debt management and financial sector development. They are primarily intended for professionals working in these areas from the public and private sectors, academic institutions, think tanks, as well as from civil society.

How does e-Learning Work

Generally speaking, e-Learning refers to the use of the internet to deliver learning or training programmes. E-Learning involves moving the learning experience out of the traditional classroom and into the learner's world. It means the participant can learn at any time, any place and without geographical or scheduling barriers. It is learning that relies on the internet for accessing learning materials and interacting with experts and fellow learners. As a participant, you will be able to access our courses from any computer which has an internet connection (once you have a username and password from UNITAR). E-Learning offers a unique opportunity to interact with participants across the world, creating a network of participants with similar professional interests, but with very different cultures and backgrounds.
