Tembo e-Learning Audiovisual Assistant (temporary contract based in Barcelona)

MSF OCBA has obtained approval and funding from the MSF international movement to carry out a Transformational Investment Capacity (TIC) program called TEMBO: "Your personal learning and development environment". This program aims to provide MSF field workers with a personal learning and development environment (PLDE), a learning system based on a software platform that will help MSF employees take control and manage their own learning and, therefore, their own development. Tailored to individual needs and learning competencies, this personally managed space will enable real-time access to a wide range of learning and development solutions on an important but not exclusive basis of online solutions. The development of this program is planned over three years and will require a specialized team of between 10 and 15 staff with diverse competences in the fields of pedagogy, education, technology, human resources, medicine and humanitarian operations.

TEMBO Elearning Context

TEMBO’s PLDE focuses on digital elearning solutions. It is tasked with generating innovative learning solutions to expand the scope and methodologies of elearning used within MSF.  The TEMBO knowledge and content team is currently producing various elearning courses that will be incorporated in the final PLDE that will be launched in the field in 2019.  The team works on all aspects of these courses: analysis and development of new learning solutions adapted to the needs of MSF projects and staff. These projects involve all the necessary steps of the learning cycle, including needs analysis, solutions design, development, implementation and evaluation. To manage these projects, a diverse set of processes, methodologies and tools are applied (such as Activity Theory Analysis, Design Thinking, Authoring Tools, etc.) This area also implies regular contact and negotiation with numerous internal and external clients, partners and providers (some of the projects being subcontracted to external providers.)
