Professional Development Opportunities and Resources

  • Learning Area 6: Formats: In a saturated media environment, the format of development messages may matter as much as the message itself. Well-packaged messages appear higher up in news feeds and search results. (OECD Development Communication Network) 
  • The Most Dangerous Writing App: Don’t stop writing, or all progress will be lost.
  • The Power of Sight Podcast: Almost everyone will need access to eye care services during their lifetime. Since 1982, Seva, an international development organization, has restored the sight of over 5 million people and helped prevent and treat visual impairment for millions more in low- and middle-income countries. But the need is enormous. And growing. Unless there is significant investment, current eye care services worldwide are unlikely to cope with future needs.
