GDLN Schedule






The Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) was launched by the World Bank in 2000 to design customized learning solutions for those wor king in development. It is a unique partnership of over 120 affiliates in about 80 countries with the objective of improving the development impact by using dist ance learning methods and connecting development decision makers to exchange knowledge globally.

The World Bank Institute, the GDLN Global Secretariat, functions as the Network’s central hub while regional GDLN associations in Africa, the Americas, Eura sia, Asia and the Pacific have their own localized missions and structures for decision-making and regional management. GDLN affiliates work with in-country networks to enrich the GDLN programs through the sharing of institutional knowledge and community experts.

The affiliates include a diverse group of global institutions and host about 1,500 learning and knowledge exchange activities globally each year, of which more than two-thirds can be characterized as South-South engagements. These events range from training courses and informal brainstorming sessions to multi- country dialogues and virtual conferences. GDLN takes advantage of a variety of learning techniques including expert panels, case-based learning and the sh aring of successful action plans, while the tools for communication are a combination of face-to-face, videoconferences, and e-Learning materials. With this te chnology, GDLN is able to effectively disseminate development knowledge to our clients, which include non-governmental organizations, private sectors, gover nment agencies, and multilateral development organizations. By utilizing the knowledge and expertise available within the partnership, GDLN addresses spec ific learning objectives and provides customized learning programs to fit the needs of the participants.

GDLN Korea

KDI School of Public Policy and Management was designated as GDLN Korea by the World Bank in 2001 and is the only affiliated Korean center for the World Bank–based Global Development Learning Network (GDLN).

GDLN Korea organizes videoconferences on various topics on Korea’s development experience to impart educational content on development. Working as a member of the GDLN Asia Pacific Governing Committee since 2011, GDLN Korea has taken a leading role in sharing development experiences for sustainab le development of neighboring partner countries in the Asia Pacific region.

GDLN Korea has been able to contribute to global development by connecting virtually with other developing countries around the world, based on the one hun dred cases of Korea's development experience from the Knowledge Sharing Program (KSP) Modularization project. The KSP Modularization is a database on Korea's exemplary cases and best practices, focusing on policies, institutions, mechanisms and public projects that contributed to its development. Since 2011, GDLN Korea has held various videoconferences on an array of topics, including rural development, human resource development, green growth and more.

GDLN Korea strives to provide integrated education on Korea’s development experience for government officials, policy makers and experts in developing cou ntries through blended learning - the combination of face-to-face learning and computer-mediated instruction. As a part of blended learning, GDLN Korea part akes in videoconferences that disseminate Korea’s development experiences and are tailored to the needs of developing countries. GDLN Korea is in consta nt effort to connect with policy makers and experts in the field of development and related institutions of developing countries, to identify their specific needs so that we can achieve effective development cooperation.

GDLN Korea develops e-Learning materials on various cases of Korea's development experience, which is in great demand by developing countries. The subj ects chosen to be made into e-Learning contents are the ones that have produced interest in the continuing videoconferences, so that participants may study t hese topics of Korea’s development experience in more depth.
