The Online Academy is currently focusing on the development of teams of online tutors and local trainers to support the distance learning process in general and blended learning in particular. The trainers/tutors use the content of the online courses to develop contextualized modules for people-centred learning.
Trained on principles of radical/critical pedagogy and adult popular education, they are a critical resource of the Online Academy for building new spaces for social learning and political engagement on the ground.
On the Whole, the Global Team of Trainers and Tutors has given rise to a political project of popular education on labour and the environment. Members from countries across the globe have organised 60 localised workshops reaching nearly 1,100 people.
