Softskills through blended learning

NIRD & PR conducted a one-day orientation workshop on 18 August 2018 for trainers from select training partners of DDU-GKY on using a blended learning approach using Instructional Videos to deliver softskills. Customised interactive videos on softskills, lifeskills and employability skills in different regional languages were piloted in collaboration with Kuza Technologies that specialises in producing micro-learning videos for livelihood missions. The pilot is for 6 weeks and results of the first wave of the pilot conducted for Odisha and Telengana trainees and its impact will be published in October 2018.

The Director General of NIRD & PR, Dr WR. Reddy, IAS, addressed the trainers and emphasised the importance of their role in building capacities of DDU-GKY candidates. “You are preparing them for life”, he said, “though your sessions might be for 20 hours in a 3-month training project.” The Director General urged the trainers to profile the candidates and get to know their trainees well, which will go a long way in moulding their future.

The workshop was organised by the Training Division of DDU-GKY.
