2019 Learning Events & Timetable
The delivery of Learning and Development in Rotary District 9940 is currently undergoing several changes. Today, the world that Rotary and its clubs and members now live in is vastly different.
 
The invention of the internet, along with technology development has not only created entirely new jobs and businesses, but also changed the way the world operates forever. Mainstream education and learning institutions have responded to this new environment with substantial and sometimes radical changes to the way learning is provided. Technology and on-line learning is now mainstream. So Rotary has to adapt to its members needs and their new working and living arrangements too.
 
Rotary Learning Centre
In response to this environmental change, Rotary International has introduced an online Learning Centre within MyRotary. For all clubs and Rotarians in what ever role they occupy, to get the very best experience of Rotary and the volunteer time we all provide, we need to know not only how Rotary and many of its programmes operate, but also provide the important knowledge for our club and district leaders to be confident and successful in their roles. It is for ALL Rotarians.
 
This centre hosts an increasing range of on-line learning modules that bring this knowledge to our Rotarians in easy, short modules that can be accessed anywhere at times suitable to the recipients. They will increasingly become a major part of Rotarians journey learning about their organisation.
 
Development
Over the next 15 months District Learning arrangements will include a mix of the following;
 
  • Learning modules delivered through local Rotary Leadership Institute workshops
  • Learning modules on the Rotary Online Learning Centre.  (Note – you will need to log on to the Rotary International website (https://www.rotary.org/en) to access this.
  • Support and advice delivered by the Chairs of District Committees.
  • Support and advice facilitated through Assistant Governors.
  • Support and advice delivered by Club Presidents and club office holders and their predecessors.
  • Learning and guidance for leaders, such as Presidents Elect, will continue  as before at Presidents Elect Training (PETS) and South Pacific Presidents Elect Training (SPPETS).
  • Targeted focus group learning sessions, through AGs and with Presidents Elect, will be held from time to time as needed.
A District Training Assembly may be held in May 2020.
Surveys on learning and training needs and the value of current practices will be conducted from time to time.
 
A review of this different approach to learning and development will be undertaken in May 2020 by a group to be set up by the District Learning and Development Chair (DLDC).
