08 Dec Sustainable Seas: CTC Participated in Workshop on Advancing Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM)

The Second Workshop on Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) was held in Bogor from October 18 to 20, 2023. At this second workshop on self-paced online training, the team from the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) and other participants worked together to produce training materials reflecting the session plan and case studies developed in the first workshop in August.

The three-day workshop involved 17 participants. Participants represented the Directorate of Fish Resources Management (PSDI), the functional representative (Widyaiswara) from the Apparatus Training Center (BDA) Sukamandi, Fishery Business Expert (AUP) Jakarta, the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), and the training and extension center (Puslatluh), all of whom brought diverse perspectives to the table. 

The training program included several essential phases during its implementation. The drafting team held strategic meetings at the outset to facilitate cooperative discussions that set out the goals and structure. Two separate workshops were then devoted to material preparation, offering an immersive setting for improving and honing training materials. Drafting materials, confirming alignment with learning objectives, and thorough reviews to ensure efficacy and clarity are all part of the iterative process.

The primary objective of this workshop was to translate the comprehensive session plans and case studies into effective training materials. The participants demonstrated remarkable adaptability in condensing content without compromising the substance of the modules.  

The drafting teams were encouraged to ensure that the materials not only met the training outcomes but also to make the learning experience more relevant, accessible, and engaging for the course takers, ultimately helping them to understand and develop course materials. 

Throughout the three-day workshop, the drafting teams were involved in an exchange of experiences and best practices, further enriching the course development process. In this process, the participants of the workshop also identified appropriate ways of delivering the material to make it easier for those who access the course to understand the material. The participants are also encouraged to support the course takers in completing the tasks required for completion of the online self-paced learning course. 

The commitment of the drafting team and CTC aim to ensure that the EAFM Planner self-paced online training program remains at the forefront of professional development initiatives. The inclusive and dynamic approach adopted during this workshop sets a precedent for future collaborations, emphasizing the importance of diverse expertise in creating relevant educational resources.
