Re: An inventory of WASH training events and resources

Hi Brian and Dorothee,

Just to ensure that everyone knows what you are talking about: I think you were discussing the different filters in the library. See screenshot for the filter "by training resource":



If we were to add more filter options there, then someone would first have to tell the secretariat what should be added to the library. The training resource documents that we currently have there were mostly provided by CAWST last year which was very helpful.

But this is different to the factsheet or inventory listing in Google doc that Dorothee and Dan were discussing.

Re: A draft listing of WASH Training and Educational Events and Resources

Hi Dan,

I am just wondering if that's the same list that you had mentioned in your forum post here last year which you had called "An inventory of WASH training events and resources":
forum.susana.org/54-wg-1-capacity-develo...urces?start=12#28965

(and I tried to access the Google Doc list that you had linked from there but it asked me to request access first)

I think your list is useful, I am just wondering if we can have one "centralised" list that is easy to access and find.
SuSanA also has an events calendar on its website here:
www.susana.org/en/news-and-events/sanita...ents/upcoming-events
(but that one is for events, not necessarily for regular courses).

I am just wondering out loud what the best place would be to make sure that anyone who is searching for courses can easily find what they are looking for. 

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: A draft listing of WASH Training and Educational Events and Resources

Hi Elisabeth

Thanks for your note. If you would like to set up a Courses/Training Events on SuSanA I would be glad to keep it updated with new educational/training resources.

We had to limit editing permissions on the google document but I just sent you an email that gives you access.

Best regards,
Dan

Re: A draft listing of WASH Training and Educational Events and Resources

Hello Dan, 

This list is very valuable and comprehensive. 
Thank you very much for sharing it. 

As part of the WASH Systems Academy of IRC, we have been doing a list of similar training.
It is a database that contains details in regards not only to the courses themselves, but also the targeted audiences, fees, partnerships, and platforms. 
How can I contribute and share it? 

Thanks a lot!

Re: A draft listing of WASH Training and Educational Events and Resources

Hi Alejandra,

What is the link to the courses database that you mentioned? I found your website but not a list of courses:  www.ircwash.org/wash-systems-academy

Also, the WASH Systems Academy deserves its own forum thread, don't you think? Do tell us more about it, also about how it's funded. I see the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation mentioned.

Hi Dan,

Have you tried adding events to the SuSanA events calendar yourself? The secretariat can give you access. Do you think that would be a feasible route or too cumbersome?

Earlier in the thread you had mentioned a Google doc. Is that this the current place where you want to maintain the list? If so, it would be useful if you made it read-only access (so that people don't have to request sharing permission just to view it). I mean this one:
docs.google.com/document/d/1xf5-UpMMwIwr...MNJaX4-d_PjyLaE/edit

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. I have merged the old thread into this one as I think they belong together.
