Advancing the professional development of ACIAR-supported researchers and alumni from around the world.
As part of its international Capacity Building program, the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) has developed the ACIAR Learn program.
ACIAR Learn is an online learning program that enhances the professional development of ACIAR-supported agricultural researchers around the world.
The program takes a new approach to capacity-building. Participants learn through bite-sized online lessons that can be accessed through their smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer. This means researchers can learn anywhere, at any time, at their own pace.
The online learning approach is complemented with peer-to-peer learning through live sessions via Zoom, discussion boards and buddy groups. This means that participants can meet peers from around the world, have valuable discussions and make meaningful connections, all through an online platform.
ACIAR Learn is an excellent opportunity for you to build valuable skills that can be directly applied to your projects, in addition to connecting with peers, and learning from previous ACIAR projects and experts in the field.
The program was first piloted in November 2021 before being rolled out in April 2022. Since launching:
