GDLN Schedule




Blended Learning Program

Program Objective

Knowledge sharing for sustainable development and global prosperity is one of the key motivations behind establishing the KDI School of Public Policy and Management. The KDI School understands the valuable role the GDLN can play as an effective tool for knowledge sharing and learning. As part of the designated GDLN Korean Center’s knowledge exchange initiatives, the KDI School is launching blended learning programs that focus on Korea’s successful development experiences.

Transitioning from an aid recipient to an OECD-DAC donor, Korea has achieved remarkable economic growth, democratization and social stability in less than half a century. With Korea’s extraordinary development widely acknowledged and documented, Korea is in a unique position to share its experiences with emerging and developing countries as a means of furthering global development. The GDLN Korean Center is committed to providing optimal opportunities for development practitioners all over the world to learn from not only Korea’s development experiences, but also to offer peer-to-peer learning opportunities among participating practitioners.

The objective of the program is to enhance the role and impact of the GDLN in connecting practitioners, policy-makers, academics, students and facilitators of development; and to provide a multi-dimensional approach to learning about Korea’s development experiences.
