• Thursday Jun 13, 2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
CoG–Maarifa Centre is on a mission to build capacity for knowledge management in Kenya and to support the identification and documentation of county innovations, best practices, and other successful initiatives that are transforming service delivery in the country. CoG–Maarifa Centre encourages sharing of information on the performance of the counties in the execution of their functions with the objective of learning and promotion of best practice. Under this program, CoG–Maarifa Centre in April 2019 trained 100 students from JKUAT’s School of Public Health both to acquire critical skills in knowledge capturing, and to support documentation of innovations and best practices in the counties. This workshop targets faculty members from the university, to sensitize them on value of building capacity for capturing county knowledge and sharing it to enhance the success of devolution.
By the end of the training, the participants should:
1. Appreciate why systematic capturing of operational experiences and lessons learned is critical for more effective service delivery in the counties;
2. identify which operational knowledge needs to be documented;
3. Appreciate the range of appropriate and relevant techniques and tools to identify, capture, validate and format experiences and lessons learned to produce knowledge assets;
4. Become part of a network of trainers of trainers, to offer support/guidance to students interested in documenting best practices in various counties.
a) Knowledge assets developed by each group of participants in the form of a write-up document and a video clip.
b) Commitment secured to serve as ToT to support students to identify county innovations, good practices and initiatives that can be documented.
This two-day workshop will:
1. Use a highly interactive and participatory process that focuses on action learning using real cases from counties.
