The courses and study tours build upon the experience of participants' and then extends their skills and knowledge by exploring the issues at hand through case study exploration and analysis, field visits to sites highlighting on-ground realities, presentations by invited specialists, and the development of personalized 'action plans'. This powerful mix of information will be presented within a highly interactive, participatory learning environment of discussion, synthesis and reflection. RECOFTC has a new approach to training for the upcoming year. In 2007, training and study tours will be delivered on demand, and customized for clients’ needs, rather than the former open subscription system.
