 Consultant: Learning Management System Mapping Consultant

Concern Worldwide U.S.

 

Concern Worldwide U.S. is looking for a skilled Learning Management System mapping consultant to conduct an assessment of humanitarian resource platforms and provide recommendations on a versatile knowledge management approach that can effectively manage e-learning content, user data, and other resources generated from a capacity building project.  


Scope of Work

 

The Local Capacity Strengthening for Response (LCS4R) project aims to strengthen the organizational capacity of local and national NGOs to respond to emergencies within the humanitarian coordination system. The goal is to enable, through focused capacity strengthening activities, participant organizations to be able to better coordinate and prepare for and respond more effectively to emergency situations affecting. Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) the project is being implemented through a consortium that brings together a combination of operational and technical expertise, spearheaded by International Medical Corps and in collaboration with Concern Worldwide. The consortium will employ three training methodologies: intensive capacity strengthening activities; a series of training symposia targeting a broader audience in the identified regions, to include CBOs, LNGOs, and NNGOs; and a learning management platform providing resources to all participating organizations, as well as the wider NGO community.

The LCS4R project will host six training events over two years: two regional trainings that target 25 local NNGO staff working in humanitarian crisis settings in East Africa and South and Southeast Asia, and subsequently a larger audience of NNGO staff who will receive onsite support, and reach an additional  400 CBO, LNGO, and NNGO staff through four symposiums.

Intensive capacity strengthening will be disseminated through pre-workshop learning (such as in the form of e-learnings), followed by the in-person workshop. The five-day symposium will include seminars and workshops led by SMEs, instructors, and stakeholders in the country/region. Training will be disseminated through plenary and keynote addresses. Key sessions will be recorded in order to  be hosted on the project website.

The knowledge management platform will offer all participating CBOs, LNGOs, and NNGOs resources, guidance materials, and best practices on all training topics. The platform will also serve as a resource hub for the symposium series, providing a space for attendees to connect and to encourage peer-to-peer learning. Materials, unique to the project, such as templates, toolkits, and other valuable resources generated will be in a centralized location and will be made accessible to the public. Management of the tool will continue throughout the life of the project by adding material and resources. The platform will also be used to promote project activities and events.

The consultant will be responsible for:

-         Assessing various options of humanitarian resource platforms currently available and other online components that would be helpful to reach project goals

-         Reviewing existing e-learning training materials from International Medical Corps and Concern Worldwide and developing a plan for the best way to deliver content through the use of Learning Management system tools and related instructional technologies

-         Reporting regularly (frequency will be specified at the beginning of consultancy) on progress and challenges, and discuss solutions with the Concern Worldwide team

-         Consultancy completion report which includes:

o  A mockup of the structure and design of the knowledge management platform

o  Recommendations on possible platforms with regards to cost effectiveness, inclusion of monitoring and evaluation features, and accessibility in areas with poor network connectivity

This consultancy must be completed by May 14, 2021 (11:59 PM ET).

Qualifications

·      Consultant will have familiarity with a range of online/blended learning methodologies, standards, and formats that can be set up, managed and maintained using a Learning Management System

·      Consultant will have a high level of digital literacy and the ability to quickly adopt new technological tools and approaches

·      Consultant will have a strong understanding of humanitarian programming and the unique challenges that local actors must navigate when responding to crises within the humanitarian system
