Newly-skilled Zambian public library trainers develop training curricula during a training-of-trainers workshop in 2019.

Public librarians who have completed training-of-trainers programmes organized by the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) and partners in Kenya, Namibia, Uganda and Zambia are invited to attend this informal knowledge sharing event - a ‘T-break’, where T stands for trainers - on the topic, ‘Becoming a Digital Enquirer’.

Guest speaker Safa Ghnaim of Tactical Tech (Germany) will present the the Digital Enquirer Kit – open e-learning course on how to prevent the spread of misinformation –, and take part in a follow-up discussion on the role and experience of public libraries in raising awareness about misinformation among communities. 

The aim of the EIFL-PLIP T-breaks is to refresh trainers’ knowledge, share practical experiences and to build a local and cross-border support network of public library trainers. Since 2017, EIFL has trained 62 public librarians in Kenya, Namibia, Uganda and Zambia to become trainers, and they have cascaded the training to over 650 librarians in their countries.
