A DACUM session on Digital Identity will be organized from 18 to 19 September in UNCTAD’s HQ. The purpose of this phase from the TrainForTrade methodology, called Design a Curriculum (DACUM) is to brainstorm with experts in the subject matter (World Bank, World Economic Forum, the Republic of Estonia, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP, Access Now, University of Lausanne) in order to define the objectives and content of job aids to be developed, to write training objectives, to define target population, to describe what the trainees will be able to do as a result of training and to design tests for each objective and finally to sequence training objectives and group them into training modules to form the curriculum.
The next steps will consist in the drafting and validating the training package for a delivery in the ASEAN in 2019.
This activity is anchored into a broader Development Account Project, titled Leapfrogging skills development in e-commerce in South-East Asia in the Framework of the 2030 Development Agenda”. The overall objective of the project is to strengthen capacities of policymakers of beneficiary countries, namely Indonesia, The Philippines and Singapore, on e-commerce in two main areas:
- Practical aspects of e-commerce, and
- Digital Identity.
Partners in this project also include UNESCAP and UNCITRAL.
