    A growing number of graduate and undergraduate programs are offering courses in the Open Standards to adaptive management. In this webinar, you will learn about the Teaching Adaptive Management (TAM) Network, hear how CCNet coaches have been involved with university courses all over the world and get some ideas on how CCNet coaches (you!) can meet the needs of universities interested in giving their students the skills necessary for good adaptive management practice. We will also address the challenges to working with universities and teaching adaptive management.

    What can you expect
    * Learn about the TAM Network, the variety (menu) of available courses, challenges when setting up a course and an overview of involved institutions, by Vinaya Swaminathan (FOS).
    * Be inspired by a European and South American example of teaching adaptive management, by Felix Cybulla (Eberswalde University) and Armando Valdés (Coordinator Programs & Projects - Tropical Andes Alliance).
    * Get some tips on how to start a course in a university near you and how to make it maximally beneficial to your work.
    * Discuss whether you or your franchise can play a role in the growing TAM Network and if so, identify specific ways to make such a collaboration mutually beneficial (e.g., through coaching/ mentoring or providing projects to student teams).

  2. A 1-hr tutorial on working with Miradi software. The webinar covers a short introduction of the first two steps of the CMP Open Standards, information on how to get a license and download the program, and goes through the major functionalities of the software: viability assessment, threat ranking, making diagrams, monitoring plan and work planning.

    This webinar was part of a training in Adaptive Management for the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation and the Central Balkan National Park. The webinar was presented by Albertien Perdok, FOS (Europe).

  3. On Monday 11 April 2016 at 3pm CEST, Amielle DeWan and Hanna Lenz, both from IFAW, presented a 1,5 hour webinar on Adult Learning for the Conservation Coaches Community (CCNet). This webinar was hosted by Jens Odinga and Albertien Perdok from CCNet Europe (http://www.ccneteurope.com).

    The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) designed an Open Standards staff training program aligned with the new thinking and best practices in how adults learn or should be taught. These principles in learning and teaching provide new insights into how we think about training coaches and others in the Open Standards; helping us move away from PowerPoint by thinking more about the adult learning, discovery activities, and the experiences trainees bring to the table.

    This is a recording of the webinar ‘Going full cycle using the CMP Open Standards’ on Tuesday 25 April 2017.

    In the webinar Ilke Tilders, Judy Boshoven and Arlyne Johnson from Foundations of Success (FOS), share their experiences related to adaptation and learning - presenting work done with partners under very different circumstances and using different approaches.

    The takeaway message is clear: There is no “one size fits all”. The approach depends on the aim, the team, the available time and data. Going full cycle is worth it and possible - even if teams don’t have formal monitoring data. You as coach should help try to help teams get their wheel of adaptive management turning.

    The Zimbabwean team from Painted Dog Conservation used their monitoring data to regularly review and adapt their management actions.

    The coalition of NGOs working on the Balkan Lynx Recovery Programme has gone full cycle last year by reviewing the effectiveness of 10 years of conservation work. Main strategies were retrofitted in a set of results chains. Learning questions were used to guide discussions. Lessons learned were taken forward in the design of the current phase.

    USAID Forestry and Biodiversity Office has formed a learning group around “conservation enterprises”, using a results chain and learning questions as the framework. Experience from applying the learning framework in Uganda demonstrates how global learning can inform local practice and visa versa.

    The last case will show how WCS has used monitoring data to evaluate and adapt a law enforcement strategy to conserve tigers in Asia. This case is the most data intensive.

  5. About 30 people, from all over the world: Russia, Australia, United States, Europe and Africa and from many different organizations, joined the webinar on 'Integrating climate adaptation in conservation projects' on 27 September 2012. We were happy and honoured that John Morrison, our guest speaker, accepted CCNet Europe's request to share his expertise and experiences with us. John, WWF US (Manager Conservation Planning & Measures) is an experienced coach and co-developer of the climate adaptation module of the WWF Project and Programme standards (PPMS; equivalent of the CMP Open Standards).

    His presentation summarized the latest insights of WWF on how to integrate climate adaptation in conservation projects. John guided us through a series of steps that can be used in a workshop setting or during a planning process. We addressed ecological drawings, some tips & trics on how (not) to use models and predictions, hypotheses of change matrix and much more. All of these steps are integrated in the Open Standards in the Define and Design steps.
