Advance Distributed Learning (ADL)
DIBS is focused on developing its ADL capacity and integrating it into training cycle. In 2017 the school conducted its first Security Sector Orientation Programme, including 2 modules – Cyber Security orientation Course and NATO introduction Course (part 1) delivered via AN ADL platform. Some 100 participants have taken these online learning courses to date.
DIBS has started a new capacity building project in cooperation with the Norwegian Ministry of Defence and Jefferson Institute in the USA. The Jefferson Institute is working with us to develop three more ADL courses in 2017 including a flagship Building Inegrity (BI) and Corruption Risks Reduction Course, Gender in PSO and MoD introduction course.
The School organized the first National ADL Conference on 14th of November 2017, where all stakeholders got together, shared experience in online-learning, virtual classrooms, video lectures, simulation games, immersive trainings, and other learning models. This was a wonderful opportunity for participants to network, share ideas and elaborate a common approach on how to develop and promote online education, not only in defence and security, but also on other national topics.
